DelDOT Proposes To Widen Sections of Route 24

There was a workshop tonight at the Beacon Middle School about the possibility of widening route 24.  We all know how bad traffic is on route 24 not only in the summer but at certain times of the day.  I avoid it completely on weekdays when the schools are letting kids in and when kids get out of school.  It is a mess, and we all know how bad it gets in the summertime.

Tuesday evening (today) from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Beacon Middle School in Lewes there was a public workshop on improvements for Route 24 from Robinsonville Road/Angola Road to Route 1 in Lewes.  There were maps showing how DelDOT would like to improve the cross roads on each side of Angola, at Robinsonville road and Camp Arrowhead road.  The two crossroads are horrible when traffic is heavy.  These improvements would make it easier for vehicles to turn left into the neighborhoods and onto route 24 with the addition of longer turn lanes. There are also improvements proposed to widen route 24 below these crossroads starting before Beacon Middle School.  Route 24 and Mulberry road will have a traffic light added for that intersection.

I would love to see route 24 widened from Millsboro to route 1 but that will probably never happen.  Below is the information from the DelDOT website about these proposed projects which would take until 2022 to complete.  Below there are links to the PDF files of the project storyboards.  In the pictures I took it is harder to see details.

Fish On!

SR24, Love Creek to SR1

Project Overview:

These corridor improvements are composed of two projects to improve the roadway safety and operations along SR24, John J. Williams Highway from Love Creek to SR1. Phase I involves improvements from east of Mulberry Knoll to SR1 and Phase II involves improvements from the Love Creek Bridge to the limits of the Phase I work. The projects have been phased as such due to the complexity, funding requirements and impacts to the traveling public. Please click on the links below for additional information on each of the two projects

A Public Workshop is scheduled for April 16, 2018 from 4:00-7:00pm at Beacon Middle School.

SR24 – Mulberry Knoll to SR1

Project Overview:

This project is the first phase of the larger planned SR24 Corridor Improvements that will improve the roadway operations along SR24, John J. Williams Highway from Love Creek to SR1. This project will widen SR24 to facilitate the continuation of the existing four lane section with center turn lane from SR 1 to west of Plantation Road. The improvements will then reduce back to the existing roadway section where the second phase of the SR24 corridor improvements will continue the widening. The project will also provide intersection improvements at SR24 and Plantation Road by adding a thru/left turn lane in both directions of Plantation Road. Stormwater management and multi-modal facilities will be installed throughout the project limits. The project will require utility relocations, some of these relocations may occur in advance of the project.

SR24, Love Creek to Mulberry Knoll

Project Overview:

This project is the second phase of the planned SR24 Corridor Improvements that will improve the roadway operations along SR24, John J. Williams Highway from Love Creek to SR1. This project will widen SR24 to facilitate the continuation of the existing four lane section with center left turn lane from west of Plantation Road, western limits of phase 1, to the Saddle Ridge housing development. From Saddle Ridge the roadway section will reduce to a two lane section with center left turn lane and will continue to Love Creek. The intersection of SR24 with Mulberry Knoll is planned to be converted to a signalized intersection with improvements on both legs of Mulberry Knoll. Stormwater management and multi-modal facilities will be installed throughout the project limits. The project will require utility relocations, some of these relocations may occur in advance of the project.
