The possibility of bad weather is delaying the overnight closure of Interstate 95 southbound in Wilmington, to install concrete barriers and striping, the Delaware Department of Transportation announced today.

There’s a hazardous weather outlook in New Castle County tonight and Thursday morning, with a 90% chance of precipitation and up to 4 inches of snow. The National Weather Service is calling for snow, freezing rain and/or sleet every day for the next six days.

The overnight closure of I-95 is part of the prep work for Restore the Corridor, a three-year plan to improve the highway and its associated ramps and bridges in the city.

DelDOT’s new schedule calls for the work to begin Feb. 19 on I-95 between Exit 6 (Martin Luther King Boulevard) and the I-495 junction.

The two right southbound lanes will be closed 9 p.m. Friday, Feb. 19, until 10 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 20.

All of southbound I-95 will be closed 10 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 20, until 6:30 a.m. Sunday, Feb. 21.

All of southbound I-95 will be closed 10 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 21, until 4 a.m. Monday, Feb. 22.

Drivers are advised to take I-495 or Route 13, and DelDOT is also posting local detours.

 

Work then moves to I-95 southbound between Delaware Avenue and Second Street. That section will be closed 10 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 23, until 4 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 24 and closed again 10 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 24, until 4 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 25.

Again, drivers are advised to take I-495 or Route 13, and DelDOT is posting local detours.

All the work, as DelDOT puts it, is pending weather.
