Weather permitting, one ramp allowing access to northbound Interstate 95 in Wilmington will close Sunday night, Aug. 1, and another will open.
That means routes will change by Monday morning for traffic going into and out of the city.
Closing will be the Adams Street/Delaware Avenue on-ramp for I95 northbound
Opening will be the 10th Street/Adams Street On-Ramp to I95 northbound.
The changes are part of phase 1 of the Restore the Corridor project, leading into phase 1b.
Preparations for the changes will start on Friday, according to the Delaware Department of Transportation. That work will include installing signage on detour routes, striping and barrier relocation.
Restore the Corridor is the nickname of a state project that involves rebuilding Interstate 95 in Wilmington, where it bisects the city. The multiphase project is expected to be finished by fall of 2023.
It will involve frequent lane changes and opening and closings of on- and off-ramps into the city.
