Route 1 Detour And Exit 9 Ramp Closure Aug. 16-18

August 8, 2019

I wanted to make you aware of some Department of Transportation information regarding detour and road closures around Route 1 and the Exit 9 Ramp as part of summer-long construction along I-95 and Route 1 which included replacing the Route I bridge over I-95 at Exit 9 in June. You can read more about The Project here.

The following is from a Department of Transportation release: 


On Friday, August 16th at 6:00 PM through Sunday, August 18th at 6:00 PM, the ROUTE 1 (East Main Street) BRIDGE WILL BE CLOSED between Courtland Avenue and Seaside Avenue for the contractor to pour the bridge approach slabs. Traffic will be detoured from Route 1 to Courtland Avenue and Hamilton Avenue.

While the closure is in effect, the EXIT 9 SOUTHBOUND OFF-RAMP and the NORTHBOUND I-95 ON-RAMP WILL BE CLOSED. Both I-95 ramps at Seaside Avenue, the Exit 9 Northbound off-ramp and Northbound on-ramp, will be OPEN to motorists throughout the weekend.  All travel lanes on I-95 will be open and unaffected by the constriction.
