Update of I-95 Weekend Closure for the Route 1/I-95 Interchange Project


Christiana: The Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) announces that due to the upcoming anticipated weather for this weekend, the planned steel girder installation for the Route 1/I-95 Interchange Project has been rescheduled.

Listed below are the new dates for the closure of I-95 northbound and lane closures on I-95 southbound.

Monday, February 25, Tuesday, February 26, and Wednesday, February 27 from 11 p.m. until 5 a.m., all three nights.

I-95 northbound CLOSED just north of Exit 4A to State Route 1 South.

I-95 northbound single lane restriction in the vicinity of the Rest Area will start at 7 p.m., with two lanes restricted after 8 p.m.

In order to mitigate anticipated backups on I-95 northbound Exit 4A, traffic is encouraged to exit I-95 at the State Route 273 interchange and head eastbound to State Route 1 northbound, back to I-95 northbound. The I-95 ramp to State Route 1 southbound will remain open during the closure of I-95 northbound.

I-95 southbound will have a two-lane closure starting from 9 p.m. until 5 a.m. each night.
