Delaware Memorial Bridge (Delaware River and Bay Authority) A project to paint the Delaware Memorial Bridge got really bad last weekend. Seven miles bad. The traffic backed up from the project site on the northbound side, Interstate 295 and then down Interstate 95 northbound to around the Route 1 interchange. That’s why the Delaware River and Bay Authority, which owns …
The two left lanes of Interstate 495 northbound are now open at the I-95/I-495 split, the Delaware Department of Transportation announced. The two right lanes remain closed, following an accident.

DelDOT plans sewer work on Grubb, mowing and litter pickup on I-495 and bridge inspections on I-95.
From 9 p.m. Friday through 5 a.m. Monday, the right turn lane will be closed on Basin Road (Route 141) southbound to Commons Boulevard westbound.
Preliminary work generated minimal congestion – so far. Pandemic restrictions cut commuting traffic, and alternative routes were popular.
DelDOT’s new schedule calls for the work to run Feb. 19-25 on different parts of I-95 southbound in the city.
The I-95 project involves multiple ways to handle congestion, including changes on buses and trains and being on top of traffic when President Biden is in town.
Small devices and a lot of technology are being used to ease travel when I-95 is redone through Wilmington. You can help, too.
The work to redo I-95 in Wilmington also involves a contraflow ramp, a road diet on Maryland Avenue and dedicated bus lines on routes 13 and 202.
