The new Second Street on-ramp to Interstate 95 southbound has opened, the Delaware Department of Transportation announced today.
This nearly $20 million project, which began on April 15, was opened on schedule by contractor R.E. Pierson.
The work removed the previous I-95 southbound on-ramps and bridge structures for the Second Street and Jackson Street ramps and built a new ramp configuration to reach I-95 southbound.
Additional left turn lanes have been added on Lancaster Avenue to Adams Street and Second Street to the new on-ramp.
The ramp is the first major project for DelDOT’s Restore the Corridor, a multiyear rehabilitation of I-95 in Wilmington that begins Feb. 12. The ramp will provide access to I-95 southbound throughout the I-95 project while other ramps are closed.
