The Wilmington News Journal reports that the northbound lanes and the I-95 flyover were closed for around seven hours yesterday after equipment being hauled by a tractor-trailer hit the underside of the interstate’s overpasses.

The truck was carrying a large modular power substation.

The falling debris hit a Wolkwagen.

This would still give full access to the Village while addressing safety concerns at the intersection.

Originally, The Delaware Department of Transportation had planned on creating a dead-end on East Main Street.

But, the Wilmington News Journal reports that local resident argued that this would hurt the delivery of emergency services and trap people in the community when there was a flood.

After nearly two years of construction the traffic should begin to flow smoothly over a new two-lane flyover ramp from Delaware Route 1 to northbound I-95 in northern Delaware.

That allows motorists heading toward Wilmington and Philadelphia to stay on the left along the ramp while those going to I-295 and New Jersey merge right.

The new ramp allows motorists to avoid shifting five lanes of interstate traffic or end up in New Jersey.

The ramp was opened around 11:30 a.m. that is designed to eliminate a choke point on the I-95 corridor in the northeast.
