NEW CASTLE (DE): Mumford and Miller, a contractor for the DRBA, is planning to install structural steel related to the I-295 Southbound Reconstruction Project west of the Delaware Memorial Bridge Toll Plaza to the I-95/I-495 split. The construction work will take place on the I-295 SB overpass of US 13.
Officials say that the steel work will require nighttime lane closures and have posted signs in place.
Mumford and Miller is scheduled to close and detour traffic on US 13 southbound at the construction area on March 20 and March 21. The detour, which will direct motorists to I-295 SB to the ramp for Route 141 NB to I-95 SB to Route 141 SB to I-295 NB to the exit for US 13 SB, will be in place from 8 PM until 5 AM both nights.
On March 26 through March 28, Mumford and Miller plans to close and detour traffic on US 13 northbound at the construction area. During the period from 8 PM through 5 AM on these dates, US 13 northbound traffic will be diverted to I-295 NB to exit for US Route 9 NB to exit for I-295 SB to the exit for US 13 NB.
According to a release, “minimal delays are expected. The safety of the traveling public and on-site highway contractors is the agency’s highest priority. Motorists are urged to be careful and stay alert in and around construction zones, obey all posted speed limit signs, and add some additional time to reach their final destination.”
