CHRISTIANA, Del. (AP) Officials say improvements are coming for Delaware’s busiest highway interchange, but things may get worse before they get better.

The intersection of Interstate 95 and Delaware Route 1 is a traffic choke point for hundreds of thousands of motorists each day. Now Delaware Department of Transportation officials say improvements could come as early as next spring.

Plans call for new high-speed ramps between the highways. Other lanes will smooth local traffic in the area.

Construction bid announcements are to be released in September and October, and work is set to be under way in 2011.

A department spokesman said construction might bring traffic setbacks but will bring big gains later.
