Route 24/5/23 Project Rolls Out This Week


A project to improve the intersection of Route 24 at Routes 5 / 23 begins this week.

Motorists can expect nighttime lane closures in the area between 9:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. through this Friday, with more nighttime work and lane closures next week.

According to DelDOT, the work will involve providing new lanes, shoulders and curbs, extending left-turn lanes and making improvements such as bike lanes, bus stops, sidewalks and crosswalks. The entire project is in six phases and is expected to be completed by the spring of 2023.
