By Amy Cherry 3:57pm, August 13, 2014Jacking will begin soon on the still shuttered northbound side of the 495 bridge.

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.
