Traffic Alert Update: Feb. 27, 2013 - Update of I-95 Weekend Closure for the Route 1/I-95 Interchange Project
The project will add high speed connecting ramps from both Northbound SR1 to Northbound I-95 and from Southbound I-95 to Southbound SR1. This work is part of a multi-year, multi-project Turnpike Improvement Program that has included work at Churchmans Road/SR 7 Intersection, the Churchmans Bridge over I-95, the I-95 5th Lane Widening project and the reconstruction of the I-95 Toll Plaza in Newark.
Increasing traffic volumes and development south of SR 1 has led to deteriorating levels of service within the area of Christiana Mall and the I-95/SR 1 Interchange. While morning and evening peaks continue to struggle, this area also has deteriorating traffic conditions at many other times of the day and often throughout weekends. On most days many of the ramps experience levels of service (LOS) F.
