I-95 Welcome Center To Reopen On Wednesday


The Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) continues to review operational needs while keeping the health and safety of our employees and customers in mind.

Effective Wednesday, March 25, 2020, at 6:00 a.m., the Biden Welcome Center on I-95 in Newark will reopen to the public in a limited capacity. The center had closed operations on Tuesday, March 17, in response to the Coronavirus outbreak.

The facility operator, HMS Host, has offered to reopen the welcome center to help the trucking community that is delivering much needed supplies and materials in the fight against the Coronavirus.

The services that will be available are:

Burger King from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. (Take out only)
Z-Mart will be open 24 hours (Take out only)
