NEW CASTLE, Delaware (WPVI) -- All southbound lanes of I-495 in New Castle, Delaware have reopened after a partial closure on Wednesday morning for repairs.
Work was done to fix a failed bridge joint on the overpass in the area of Route 13, according to DelDOT.
A spokesperson said the issue was reported Wednesday morning by a driver who struck something protruding above the roadway.
The spokesperson says a bridge joint can fail over time with the effects of heat and cold and expansion and contraction.
Some additional work will still need to be done, but DelDOT said that will be done at night.
