Isn't that part of I-295 maintained by the DRBA? They had mileposts there at one time, but no clear jurisdictional markers that I can recall.

I believe DRBA jurisdiction starts at US 13 / 40 interchange, which would make sense given that's where the Delaware Memorial Bridge approaches initially dumped you prior to the interstates being built.

Further west/south.

The new 141 overpass allows for such widening; the former construction of the barrier on 295 approaching US 13 allows for such widening as well.  But as far as I know the DRBA has no such plans to complete the widening process for any time in the near future.

DelDOT's latest spend plan has what I can only assume is widening tentatively slated to begin along I-295 NB between SR 141 and US 13 in FY26.
See rows 90-95: https://deldot.gov/Publications/reports/CTP/pdfs/CTP-FY20-FY26-Spend-Plan-COT-Revised.pdf?cache=1571798452414

Looking further down in those plans, I notice that the new signage for DE 141 omits US 202. Is DelDOT planning to truncate 202 to the interchange north of Wilmington, or are they just de-emphasizing it?
I've not seen any official chatter about truncation, but there's already precedent for truncating more useful US route designations elsewhere in the state, see US 113 from Milford to Dover for instance.  Given how I rarely if ever hear anybody outside of here refer to anything south of Concord Pike as US 202, it's certainly a possibility.

This reminded me of something else I stumbled upon today, the bridge twinning project on Road A over SR 1 by the Christiana Mall seems to be further de-emphasizing SR 1's short trek beyond I-95 to SR 58. The signing and striping plans on pages 130-137 of the link below show a couple of distant references to SR 1 NB past Road A, but none of the signage directly adjacent to the ramps includes any mention of it. Only SR 7 NB and directions to I-95 are referenced. DelDOT's going as far as to post a new 'SR 1 Ends' sign just prior to the new overpass.

I guess that means the 1 will Definitely not be extended! .

3. 141 SB RECONSTRUCTION is moving along & the Newark 95 exit has been closed for sometime & they are already pouring concrete for the ramp.
Something I noticed on DE-141 SB today at I-95 SB was that there appeared to be a traffic signal assembly installed where the I-95 SB to DE-141 SB ramp merges with DE-141.  I'm not sure what this will be used for, but the I-287 EB/Hutchinson Parkway interchange in the White Plains NY area came to mind (they have lights at that interchange I'm assuming to prevent weaving).

Here's your answer

When the ramps are reopened there will be a new traffic pattern with new traffic lights for southbound Route 141.

The Route 141 southbound right lane will have a traffic signal while the left lane will be on constant green, and traffic coming off the ramp from southbound I-95 to southbound 141 will be subject to a traffic light.

From the nextdoor app itself. The gas that goes to wawa & other little gas stations is “Bare Bone gas” & we should get our gas from real name “gas stations.”

Consumer Reports agrees that Top Tier gas (what you mentioned) is better for your vehicle: https://www.consumerreports.org/car-maintenance/study-shows-top-tier-gasoline-worth-extra-price/

That said, I wouldn't rely on "Joe Joe" knowledge.  He just said that the gas at Wawa is from his refinery...then says it's from China. Oil comes from the ground. It doesn't care what country it's under.

This right here! It was more sarcasm on my part. Sorry if yall couldnt tell. The people on nextdoor talk about the craziest things. You should have seen how they were acting when they were fixing Harmony road & Redmill @ the same time. Talk about crazy.

Are the traffic nightmares of De-1 at Christiana mall finally over?! Looks like the 3rd lane going SB is finally getting completed. Slated to start Spring 2020 & end summer 2020.

Considering the traffic stems from traffic exiting SB at SR 273 and this project addresses the segment between SR 273 and US 40, this project likely isn't going to make any impact on the back-ups into the mall interchange.

Aww damn did I read it wrong. I thought it was adding a thru lane from the 273exit to 40 :/. Not after it.


It will still improve the traffic which is also caused from people merging onto the 1 from 273 going SB. So thats a plus.
