Obama Visiting Delaware To Announce Transportation Initiative

Posted: Updated:

President Barack Obama will be in Wilmington on Thursday, speaking in front of the shutdown Interstate 495 bridge to announce a new initiative to help our nation's infrastructure.

Meanwhile, things are moving smoothly with repairs on the bridge.

DelDOT says crews finished construction Wednesday on 32 new underground support columns. They're continuing work on towers that will lift the bridge deck back into alignment.

If all goes well, DelDOT hopes to eventually open the southbound lanes a few weeks before Labor Day.

The bridge has been closed since June 2 after an inspection showed four columns supporting the bridge were tilting.

FOX 29's Jennifer Joyce has more details on the president's visit in this live report from Wilmington.
