You'll be facing some detours off Delaware Route 1 starting Monday night for construction.

DelDOT spokesman Bob King says Route 1 northbound will be closed at Route 273 from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m. from Monday through Wednesday, depending on the weather.

"Basically what you would do is you get off at Route 273, you're headed westbound on I-95, and that will get you northbound to Route 1 and then you get off on Route 1 to continue northbound," King said.

Construction crews are putting steel girders in place for an overpass.

There will be a second detour in place at the Stanton-Christiana Road and Center Boulevard for vehicles not traveling to the Christiana Mall but missed the first detour at Route 273. Vehicles will be directed to turn left onto Stanton-Christiana Road, turn left onto the ramp to Route 1 southbound, then exit at Exit 162, then turn right onto Route 273 westbound and back to I-95 northbound.
