TRAFFIC ALERT – Emergency Repairs to Bridge Overpass on I-295 Southbound over U.S. Route 13
(New Castle, DE) On Thursday, July 16, Delaware River and Bay Authority (DRBA) maintenance personnel will be undertaking emergency repair work to the pavement at both ends of the I-295 southbound bridge overpass at U.S. Route 13.
The existing two southbound lanes prior to the overpass will be reduced to one lane. That single lane will be shifted to the shoulder at the bridge overpass on I-295 southbound. This restriction will occur from 9 AM to 3 PM.
In addition, the ramp from U.S. Route 13 northbound to I-295 southbound will be closed during this time period. Detour signage will be posted.
The construction work is weather dependent and will be postponed should inclement conditions occur. Motorists should expect delays. The safety of the traveling public and on-site maintenance workers is the agency’s highest priority. Motorists are urged to be careful and stay alert in and around construction zones, and obey all posted speed limit signs.
