Years of work to improve the Marsh Road interchange with I-95, which began with better signage in 2016, is essentially ending at 5 p.m. Saturday, with left-turn restricted movements removed and the I-95 southbound off-ramp fully opening to traffic. A new traffic signal will also be activated.
The Delaware Department of Transportation said today that motorists can anticipate lane closures in the area to finish the project.
This project added two dedicated left-turn lanes from the I-95 northbound off-ramp to Carr Road; and from Carr onto Marsh. On Marsh, the left turn lanes to and from the I-95 ramps were lengthened. A signal was added on the I-95 northbound off-ramp. A path along Marsh was constructed for bicyclists and pedestrians.
The area used to experience rush-hour congestion, and hence a high number of congestion-related accidents, DelDOT said. The project was originally scheduled to end a year and a half ago.
