I-95 delays may 'stretch for miles'
If you're planning on traveling I-95 through the Newark Toll Plaza for Thanksgiving, it may be time to develop an alternate plan.
The Delaware Department of Transportation is warning drivers that backups will be even worse than in past years due to construction work at the plaza. The lines of traffic "could stretch for miles and take hours to clear," the agency said in a statement.
Officials predict that backups will start as early as Tuesday morning and last through the evening of Monday. Nov. 29. Updates will be available through the agency's Twitter account, @DelwareDOT, and on WTMC 1380 AM radio. The agency also has an interactive traffic map that you can check before leaving home.
