I-495 bridge is closed indefinitely, though I don't know if that's days or months. It's basically a Wilmington bypass road. I-95 goes through Wilmington (strangely), when the route should probably follow the bypass road instead. I-95 is just weird. It is the main corridor, but it actually should bypass Wilmington and Philly, especially as it sort of ends north of Philadelphia, and is not attached in any way to the other part of I-95 which is most of the New Jersey Turnpike (it doesn't even have a connection to the PA Turnpike, even though they intersect, which has regularly confused travelers over the years).
