The Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) warns motorists to expect major traffic delays throughout the Christmas and New Year’s holiday week at the I-95 Newark Toll Plaza. The predicted impacts are expected to be greater than in recent years and could stretch for miles and take hours to clear.
Due to the on-going I-95 Newark Toll Plaza Reconstruction, reduced toll lane access and altered traffic patterns will greatly impact the Christmas and New Year’s holiday week travelers. These factors, combined with the anticipated increase of holiday traffic, will result in serious backups and travel delays, starting as early as Thursday, December 23 and lasting through Monday evening, December 27, and Thursday, December 30 through Monday, January 3. Travelers should consider using alternative routes, using alternative modes of travel or traveling during hours with lower traffic volumes.
