WILMINGTON, DELAWARE (8/7/2015) State officials held a ceremony today to mark the completion of a three-year project to improve the Interstate 95 and U.S. 202 interchange north of Wilmington.

The construction included extending, widening and relocating ramps.

Gov. Jack Markell expressed thanks for the 80 percent federal funding of the project.

“That funding, combined with a significant investment by the state, supported a project that created jobs, made our roads safer and served as a boost to our local economy,” Markell said.

Transportation Secretary Jennifer Cohan said the improvements will help reduce congestion.

“The corridor is an important link to the economic vitality of the state and the region, and it is
imperative that we continue to invest in our aging infrastructure,” she said.

The $33 million project, completed in July, was done by Mumford and Miller Concrete of Middletown.
