The emergency closing of an interstate bridge in Delaware because some support columns are tilted could mean major headaches Tuesday for motorists on the heavily traveled Interstate 95 corridor through the Mid-Atlantic region, officials say.
State officials ordered the closing Monday of the Interstate 495 bridge over the Christina River in Wilmington, Delaware, after discovering that four supporting columns were tilting.
The 4,800-foot bridge normally carries about 90,000 vehicles a day on I-495, which diverts traffic around the city of Wilmington and toward the Port of Wilmington. The route parallels Interstate 95, which runs through downtown Wilmington and already is heavily congested during the morning and afternoon rush hours.
"You can't take 90,000 vehicles and just shift them onto 95 and not expect to have an impact," Bhatt said. "This is an important artery for the Northeast."
Officials cautioned it's not clear just how long the bridge will remain closed while the matter is resolved.
