    Drivers heading through Delaware this weekend are dealing with detours and heavy traffic because part of I-95 is shut down. NBC10’s Matt DeLucia reports. (Published Saturday, Aug 17, 2013)

    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.
