I-95 Restore the Corridor Project
On March 1 the State of Delaware’s Department of Transportation (DelDOT) began a two-year reconstruction project to refurbish and resurface a portion of Interstate 95 that runs through the City of Wilmington. The project moved into Phase 2, with traffic moving both ways on the northbound side of the highway, in December. To know what is planned, when things will occur, and how all of it will affect your travels, you should

As part of the continuing Restore the Corridor project, DelDOT reminds motorists that there are now two exits from I-95 Southbound into Wilmington: Exit 7A for downtown Wilmington and Exit 6 for 4th Street. Exit 7B, which was closed earlier this month, is expected to remain closed for construction for the next three months.
Motorists that need to go out Pennsylvania Avenue or head west on Delaware Avenue should now take Exit 7A, turn left onto Adams Street, and left again onto Delaware Avenue.

DelDOT and the Delaware State Police further remind motorists that the pilot Electronic Speed Safety Program, which began on Monday, January 17, 2022, in the I-95 construction zone, is now issuing tickets with fines included.
