Newport – The Delaware Department of Transportation’s (DelDOT) contractor, Mumford and Miller Inc., will be shifting the I-295 northbound traffic to I-95 northbound between Exit 5 and past the SR 141 northbound interchange beginning Thursday, November 30, 2017.

In addition, Exit 2/SR 141 southbound to I-295 northbound will be closed during these times.

Detour Routes:
I-295 northbound motorists will use the right lane signed for I-95 northbound and stay in the right lane of I-95 and then use the temporary crossover just past the work zone on the right to enter I-295.

SR 141 motorists traveling southbound to I-295 northbound will follow detour signs to Commons Boulevard to Churchmans Road to I-95 northbound to I-295 northbound.

Beginning Monday, December 4, I-95 northbound will be closing and shifting lanes to I-295 northbound during the following times:

The nighttime lane and ramp closures are necessary as work continues on the SR141 bridges over I-95.
