Significant Delays for I-95 Construction in Delaware

The Delaware Department of Transportation will be closing two lanes on I-95 northbound from the Newark Toll Plaza through the Route 896 interchange beginning at approximately 9:00 p.m. on Wednesday, January 24, 2018, weather permitting, to allow for work to replace a failing segment of roadway. Beginning at approximately 11:00 p.m., a third lane will be closed to increase safety for the workers. The third lane closure will be removed at around 5:00 a.m. on Thursday, and the double lane closure will remain in effect into the evening hours on Thursday, January 25.

DelDOT crews have patched the roughly 20-foot section of roadway just beyond mile marker 2.5 in the vicinity of the Route 896 interchange three times over the past week, however, the road surface has continued to deteriorate, and re-patching has required unannounced lane closures to continue repairing the road surface. This long-term repair will consist of removing the damaged roadway and pouring new concrete. Once the concrete has cured, the lane closures will be lifted.

Motorists traveling I-95 north should expect significant delays in the area beginning Wednesday night through Thursday evening.

Message boards and alternate routes will be posted.

Delaware DOT Traffic Alert – Winter Storm Preparations

DelDOT’s maintenance crews in Kent and Sussex Counties maintenance districts are brining the primary roads, and will continue to monitor weather conditions statewide as the winter storm approaches. New Castle County primary roads have already been pre-treated.

A winter storm advisory is now in effect until 5 p.m. tomorrow for central and northern Delaware with a winter storm warning for southern Delaware in effect for Thursday, January 4. At this time, motorists may anticipate snow accumulations of 2 to 8 inches with the higher amounts in southern Delaware. With the forecasted gusty winds, DelDOT anticipates drifting snow which will greatly impact visibility and road conditions and slow snow removal operations. Motorists should use caution when driving on bridges, ramps, and overpasses that may have ice and slippery conditions.

After the primary roads are passable, DelDOT’s crews will move to the secondary roads. DelDOT’s crews may also return to the primary roads even after operations have started on secondary roads due to the changing of weather conditions.

Please assist in our operations by being mindful of our snowplow operators and do not pass a snowplow. Motorists should maintain a safe speed and control of your vehicle.
