DelDOT has been working to improve the traffic flow and safety along the Route 113 Corridor through Sussex County. The project includes 17 intersection upgrades – with many involving overpasses to keep traffic on the highway flowing. A public workshop on the Route 113/404 intersection improvements was held Tuesday afternoon at Delaware Tech with five alternative options presented for public comment.
All of the options will impact businesses in the current intersection area in varying ways and right of ways would still have to be purchased. However Transportation officials say that recent and proposed development in the surrounding area and throughout the US 113 Corridor will continue to increase traffic volumes and congestion at the intersection. DelDOT is taking public comment for 30 days on the alternative options.
