495NB still slated to open before Labor Day weekend
By Amy Cherry

The northbound side of 495 remains closed to traffic as crews work to begin the jacking process.
Jacking will begin soon on the still shuttered northbound side of the 495 bridge.

Construction crews are realigning the northbound side and are installing steel bracing below the bridge deck this week.

DelDOT anticipates the jacking of the northbound side to be more difficult and to take longer than the southbound side because the lean is more severe.

But the state transportation agency still predicts the northbound span will be open before Labor Day weekend.
