I-495 Christina River bridge reopens to traffic — partially

Video, pictures and more from the southbound span of the I-495 bridge over the Christina River in Delaware, which reopened to traffic on Thursday last ...

Delaware DOT quietly reopened the northbound lanes of the formerly tilting I-495 bridge over the Christina River on Saturday, August 23. The opening marked a finish to the repair project that was well ahead of schedule. Follow the link on this for background on the two-months-long project. 

Jubilation from area residents, no doubt echoed by truckers running through, to the reopening was well evident in replies to the DelawareOnline.com newspaper site’s above initial tweet of the news.
