Cave Neck Road Improvements Coming Soon
Del-dot is working on a plan to fix the issues at what is now one of the most dangerous intersections around. There have been just too many accidents. There are several intersections in our area that have gotten just way too congested to be safe anymore.
TRAFFIC ALERT – Median Crossover Safety Improvements Will Require Nighttime Lane Closures on Route 1 at Cave Neck Road
WHEN: 8:00 p.m. on August 5, 2019 until 5:00 a.m. on August 6, 2019, pending weather.
Rain Date: August 6, 2019 from 8:00 p.m. until 5:00 a.m. on August 7, 2019.
WHERE: Route 1 NB/SB at Cave Neck Road Intersection, Milton.
WHAT: The Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) will implement turning restrictions at the Route 1 Northbound/South and Cave Neck Road intersection. Intermittent lane closures will occur at the intersection.
Motorists should expect delays in this area due to the presence of lane closures along Route 1 and on Cave Neck Road for the installation of signing, pavement marking and tubular markers to complete the work.
This is the first interim step to future improvements currently in the project development phase to address roadway safety, operational issues and traffic circulation along Route 1 between Route 16 and Five Points. The need for interim improvements at the Cave Neck Road intersection is based on safety analyses conducted through DelDOT’s Highway Safety Improvement Program.
The modifications will require motorists on Cave Neck Road approaching Route 1 to turn right to go south on Route 1.
Motorists wanting to go north on Route 1 from Cave Neck Road will turn right onto southbound Route 1 and then make a U-turn at a crossover south of the Cave Neck Road intersection.
Route 1 northbound, motorists will still be able to turn left onto Cave Neck Road.
Route 1 southbound, motorists will not be able to make a U-turn at the Cave Neck Road intersection as part of these restrictions.
Variable message boards will be posted to advise motorists of the upcoming lane closures.
Motorists should use caution in the work zone and obey flaggers that will be on-site at the intersection.
