Delaware's Department of Transportation is alerting drivers of a major road closure that will impact weekend travel.

I-95 North and Southbound at the Route 202 interchange shut down Friday at 9 p.m.. It won't reopen until 5 a.m. Monday morning.

"Well I mean it is annoying but it is gonna be an improvement that is the idea," said Tim Carrick, of Wilmington.

During the closure, crews will be busy demolishing a bridge ramp connecting I-95 Northbound to Route 202, which is no longer needed. They will also be replacing two beams on the Route 202 Bridge over I-95.

Here are the detour routes suggested by DelDOT:
