DelDOT Announces US 13 NB/SB Weekend Closure for Bridge Work

Posted: Dec 28, 2017 11:34 AM Updated:

NEW CASTLE, Del. - The Delaware Department of Transportation on Thursday announce that US 13 northbound under the SR 141/Basin Road Bridge will be closed to through traffic beginning at 8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 5. 

US 13 southbound will remain open until approximately 6 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 6. At all times, the right lane on both US 13 northbound and southbound will remain open for the duration of the closure for access to local businesses.  This work is anticipated to be completed by 5 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 8. During this weekend closure, motorists are advised to seek alternate routes.

Implementing this weekend closure will save significant time in the placement of the new deck panels as the contractor works toward the goal of reopening the bridge to traffic in late January.

Variable message boards will be in place to notify motorists of the upcoming closure with detour routes.

Local businesses, Airbase Carpet Mart and Arner’s Restaurant will be open and accessible to customers during the closure.

  • US 13 Southbound:  Traffic will follow I-295 to south Route 9/New Castle Avenue to SR  273 west (Ferry Cut Off Street/Delaware Street/Frenchtown Road) to US 13.
  • US 13 Southbound (Local Traffic Detour):  Traffic will follow US  13 southbound and take north US 202/SR 141 New Castle/Newport Exit Ramp.  Follow northbound on US 202/SR 141 to Commons Boulevard/Airport Road south to SR 58/Churchmans Road east to SR  273 east and return to US 13.
