Painting, construction and flooding are the reasons behind some upcoming road closures in New Castle County, according to the Delaware Department of Transportation.

EZ Pass lanes on I-95

The I-95 Newark Toll Plaza northbound and southbound EZ Pass lanes will be closed for patching and striping, 9 a.m. Nov. 15 through 5 a.m. Nov. 18, pending weather.

During the closure, motorists will utilize the CASH lanes – and are warned about potential slowdowns. The EZ Pass work started last week.

I-95 and Route 141 ramps

As part of the long-running improvements to the interchange of Route 141 and I-95, nighttime paving will close multiple ramps 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Thursday-Friday Nov. 11-12 and Monday-Friday Nov. 15-19.

The ramps affected are Exits 5A and 5B on I-95 southbound and Exits 3B on Route 141 northbound and southbound, Newport.

Variable message boards and detour routes will be posted.

Route 9

Route 9/St. Augustine Road, between Belts Road and Sixth Street, near Middletown is closed until further notice, due to washout from last week’s flooding.
