Two road closures east of Newark will affect traffic in the coming weeks.
Part of Harmony Road will be closed from 6 a.m. July 19 to 5 p.m. July 26, officials said.
The closure will affect the bridge over the Amtrak tracks, which is between Ruthar Drive and Stanton-Ogletown Road. Crews will rehabilitate the deteriorated concrete bridge deck.
Even after the road reopens, motorists can expect nighttime lane closures.
Another project is planned nearby at the Interstate 95/Del. 273 interchange.
The right lane of westbound Del. 273 will be closed from From Aug. 1 through Aug. 30, and the on-ramp to southbound I-95 will be closed from July 18 to Aug. 23.
This closure is necessary for the contractor to demolish and repave the bridge deck.
The work is part of a major project to reconfigure the interchange, which has a notoriously difficult merge from southbound I-95 onto Del. 273. The work, which began earlier this year and will continue through the summer of 2022, involves relocating the I-95 southbound ramp to Del. 273 westbound and building a signalized intersection to improve safety for motorists.
