The Delaware Department of Transportation says construction is set to begin on a new Christiana Mall bridge.

The new will replace an existing bridge that serves as a main access point to the Newark mall. The project is part of the planned redesign of the Interstate 95 and Route 1 interchange.

The transportation department says construction is scheduled to begin next week and is expected to be finished by mid-November.

The project will lead to nighttime lane closures initially, and daytime closures in later months.
