WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Transportation officials say Delaware residents should expect delays due to lane closures on the I-495 bridge over the Christiana River this week.

The Wilmington News Journal reports (https://delonline.us/2r6mBAP ) that DelDOT contractors will close two northbound lanes on the bridge from Monday evening until Wednesday afternoon to conduct repairs. The lanes will remain closed each day from 7 p.m. to 3 p.m.

The newspaper reports that one lane will be open while the work is being done. All lanes will reopen Wednesday afternoon.

Delaware officials are encouraging drivers to use alternate routes.
