A contractor will be inspecting bridges over I-95 and I-495 this week, requiring nighttime lane closures on I-495 and I-95, the Delaware Department of Transportation has announced.

On Monday night and Tuesday morning, inspectors will be looking at the bridge over I-95 on I-495 southbound and the Exit 11 off-ramp, near Claymont. From 9-11 p.m. Monday, the left lane will be closed on I-495 southbound between the Pennsylvania state line and Exit 5/Route 13.

From 11 p.m. until 5 a.m., the closure switches to the right lane on I-95 northbound just prior to Exit 11/Naamans Road. During this time, motorists may wait up to 15 minutes with the closure of Exit 11 to complete the inspection of the bridge above the ramp.

On Wednesday and Thursday nights, inspectors will be looking at the bridge over I-495 on Myrtle Avenue, Claymont.

From 9 p.m. Wednesday until 5 a.m. Thursday, there will be alternating left/right lane closures on I-495 northbound between Exit 4/Edgemoor Road and Exit 5/Philadelphia Pike.

From 9 p.m. Thursday until 5 a.m. Friday, there will be alternating left/right lane closures on I-495 southbound between the same two exits.
