Here's yet another reason to avoid Delaware
As if the Delaware Turnpike toll plaza wasn't enough of a motivator, there's yet another reason to avoid the Blue Hen State: You could get bonked by falling concrete on Interstate 95.
The Associated Press reports that the Delaware State Police are enforcing intermittent closing of I-95 because of chunks of concrete falling from an overpass. The problem led to a two-hour closing of the roadway Thursday morning.
Delaware Department of Transportation engineers are assessing the problem, and additional closings are possible, police warn. It appears to be an excellent excuse to stay on U.S. 40 and avoid the turnpike tolls or to shun Delaware entirely.
