Christiana Mall Road Bridge to be rebuilt

Work on the new Christiana Mall Road Bridge over Route 1 is scheduled to begin Monday, according to the Delaware Department of Transportation.

It’s expected to be completed within 259 days.  Officials are warning of possible delays during construction, since that construction will run into the summer months.

The $12.2 million project will include work to build the new bridge and roadway approach tie-ins to the Christiana Mall “ring-road.”

This work is part of a multi-year, multi-project I-95 Improvement Program that has included work at the Churchman’s Road/Route 7 Intersection, the Churchman’s Road Bridge over I-95; the I-95 Fifth Lane widening; and the reconstruction of the I-95 toll plaza in Newark.

The final project of the I-95 Improvement Program, expected to begin later this year, will include the construction of the new I-95 & Route 1 interchange ramp system.
