DelDOT to host virtual public meeting on I-95 rehabilitation project
The Delaware Department of Transportation will hold a virtual informational meeting at 6 p.m. Jan. 28, which will include a detailed briefing of the start of the multi-year Interstate Highway 95 rehabilitation project through the city of Wilmington.
Lane restrictions for the project are scheduled to begin Feb. 12, with construction beginning in early March. The meeting can be accessed via the project website, restorethecorridor.com.
The session will provide an overview of the project and schedule, an update on advance projects already underway, commuting solutions and employment opportunities.
Throughout construction, at least one lane in each direction of I-95 will remain open, and ramp closures will be staggered to continuously maintain access in and out of the city. Planned construction includes the repair of 19 bridges, 11 ramps, the removal and replacement of the top two inches of concrete on the bridge decks to maintain the integrity of the underlying structural concrete and replacing deteriorating concrete traffic barriers and roadway expansion joints. Major traffic impacts will be limited to two years of the three-year contract.
