I-95 S reopens in Delaware

By Mark Berman

5:25 p.m. Update: The highway reopened about 3:10 p.m. The closure was caused when a truck lost its load of gravel and overturned about noon.

1:10 P.M. UPDATE:
I-95 North has reopened in Wilmington, while I-95 South remains blocked.

12:50 P.M. UPDATE:
Now just two lanes of I-95 North are blocked in Wilmington, while I-95 South remains entirely blocked due to the overturned tractor trailer.

The Delaware Department of Transportation also reports heavy, heavy congestion from the Delaware/Maryland border to the Delaware Toll Plaza.

12:45 P.M. UPDATE:
Right now, the New Jersey Turnpike/I-295 North is pretty empty and traffic is moving smoothly, so that's an excellent alternative to I-95 North through Wilmington.

12:28 P.M. UPDATE:
I-95 North is closed now in Wilmington due to emergency vehicles responding to the overturned tractor trailer on I-95 South.

If you see this in time, split off onto I-495 North to get around Wilmington. It's also potentially worth branching off onto the New Jersey Turnpike northbound and cut back to I-95 at some point north. (You can take Route 42 over to I-76, which merges to I-95 in Philly.)

An overturned tractor trailer is blocking southbound I-95 on the Brandywine River Bridge in Wilmington, according to the Delaware Department of Transportation. Commuters are advised to split off onto I-495 South.
