Mountaire Farms is donating $210,000 towards the cost of improvements to Railroad Avenue in Selbyville.  The roadway has been closed since March after a metal culvert developed rust issues in 2015 – but only temporary repairs were done at the time.  It’s estimated that the cost to make the repairs is about $395,000 – the balance of the funding will come from a grant from DNREC.  The section of road that has been closed connects Cemetery Road and Hosier Street.  It’s expected the repairs will take about 2 months to complete.
