A $20 million I-95 corridor rehabilitation project is scheduled to begin on April 15, 2020 according to a news release from the Delaware Department of Transportation (DELDOT).
Wilmington (DE): According to DELDOT data, the project will remove the existing I-95 southbound on-ramps and existing bridge structures for the 2nd Street and Jackson Street ramps and build a new ramp configuration for access to I-95 southbound.
“Additional left-turn lanes will also be added on Lancaster Avenue to Adams Street and 2nd Street to the new reconfigured on-ramp.”, the release said.
You can also expect some closures as the 2nd Street on-ramp to I-95 southbound will close on Saturday, May 2, 2020, and will remain closed for the duration of the project. The Jackson Street on-ramp to I-95 southbound will close in August 2020.
However, DELDOT explains that there will be “nighttime intermittent lane closures from 8:00 p.m. until 5:00 a.m. Sunday to Friday, and road closures during certain phases of this construction. Traffic alerts and variable message boards will be posted to alert motorists of scheduled road closures.”
The contractor for the nearly $20 million project is R.E. Pierson Construction, Inc., and is estimated to be completed by the end of 2020.
