Delaware Memorial Bridge Closes Lanes to Repair Wires

Drivers may want to avoid the Delaware Memorial Bridge Tuesday.

Two Delaware-bound lanes of the bridge that connects the First State with New Jersey will remain closed until 8 p.m., said the bridge.

The closure will allow crews to replace wire ropes that connect the bridge deck with the main suspension cable, said the bridge on its Twitter feed. [[382073401, C]]

Traffic continued to flow over the bridge Tuesday morning but back in April, similar repairs caused traffic troubles so you may want to use Exit 13 along Interstate 295 or Exit 2 of the New Jersey Turnpike to the Commodore Barry Bridge (U.S. Route 322) as an alternate route to avoid delays.
