DRBA Maintenance Crews to Perform Highway Work on I-295 Northbound
Multiple Lanes to be impacted between SR 141/I-295/I-95 interchange and US 13/I-295
NEW CASTLE, Del. – Today, Delaware River and Bay Authority (DRBA) officials announced upcoming road work scheduled for Wednesday, May 27, 2020 and Thursday, May 28, 2020 between the hours of 8:30 am and 3:00 pm. The work, which entails structure and pothole repairs, will impact I-295 northbound between the SR 141/I-295/I-95 interchange and US 13/I-295 interchange.
During the scheduled work, travelers can expect delays due to the reduction of I-295 northbound traffic thru lanes. Traffic will be reduced and shifted to a single left lane in advance of the work zone and will then be transitioned back to four thru lanes on I-295 northbound prior to the I-295/Rt. 9 interchange. During the work zone hours, I-295 northbound and an alternate access to US 13 will be available to commuters via existing signage.
The construction schedule may vary due to inclement weather. Commuters and travelers are urged to be careful and stay alert in and around construction zones, obey posted speed limits, and plan to take a few extra minutes during rush hour periods.
