[Route 141 seems to have numbers that are close enough already for mileage; good enough to stay as they are.

Pretty much, with some minor nitpicks. The US 13/US 40, I-295, and I-95 exits are perfectly accurate, as is DE 4 as Exit 4A (except that it would be 4A in both directions).  The South James St/Old Airport Rd Southbound exit would change from 4B to 3C, DE 62 would change from 5 to 4B, and the DE 2 northbound exits would be 5A and 5B instead of 6A and 6B.  I also would give numbers to a pair of unnumbered interchanges: the DE 52 interchanges would be Exit 8, and the US/DE 202 interchanges would be Exit 11.

Tangential note: States that have been mile-based for decades tend to have more unposted interchanges or even routes, because there's no need to fear the FHWA. US 1/9, NJ 3, NJ 4, NJ 18 through New Brunswick, NJ 208, NJ 495... I could add so many more stretches to this.

Virtual public meetings are scheduled for the I-95/DE 896 Interchange and the DE 24 Corridor on February 16th and 25th respectively.

The latest documents for the I-95/DE 896 Interchange can be found here.

Also DelDOT is having an upcoming virtual workshop for the Coastal Corridors Transportation Study.

Please correct me if I'm wrong about this, but the University of Delaware in Newark seems to be the only location in Delaware with "See Inside" images by Google (as opposed to the recently introduced custom imagery that is usually of lower quality).

But what is interesting is that some states have added numbers to tiny little short stretches of freeway that previously did not have them.  CT added numbers to SR 796 (the Milford Connector), CT 349 and CT 184, and will add numbers to CT 3, CT 17 and CT 82. All of these are freeways (in the case of CT 17, multiple sections thereof),  that are less than 3 miles in length and/or have 1 or 2 exits.  All but SR 796 were/will be  the result of mileage based conversion (CT 72 was another example 20 years ago, and will be changing again).

Most curious. I'll have to hit up Milford again and 3 once it's converted. It's their choice though.

There will be a virtual information session updating the status of I-95 in Wilmington this upcoming Wednesday.

Also there is also an online public workshop ongoing for the US 13 bridges over the Nanticoke River in Seaford.

I just want to note that it was mentioned at the DE 24 virtual meeting that the North Millsboro Bypass is currently planned to start construction in 2023.
