Northbound Lanes of I-495 to Close for Pothole Repair

All northbound lanes of I-495 in Delaware between I-95 and U.S. 13 near New Castle are scheduled to close this weekend as crews work to fill potholes along the route.

Delaware Department of Transportation said in a statement that closures will occur between 8:00 p.m. Friday and 5:00 a.m. Monday. The segment also will be closed April 28 to May 1.

Officials say lanes will be closed on weekends for the safety of workers and to minimize the impact to the traveling public.

DelDOT traffic manager Gene Donaldson says upcoming traffic delays are likely to occur on I-95 northbound lanes along with the two highways' southern interchange.

AAA Mid-Atlantic spokesman Ken Grant says I-495 is noticeably in disrepair and the impact on drivers should be minimal compared to if the repairs happened during the week.
