Dune Breach Closes Route 1 Southbound Lane
Route 1 southbound was just closed for water on the highway. This was mostly bay water, until the dune breached below Dewey Beach that is also flooding the highway. ” The breach is at Conquest Road and is flowing heavily through the dunes from the beach across route 1.” Del Dot has closed the southbound lane for now. We will let you know when that reopens. You can also look up the Del Dot app for more updates. Most likely the breach occurred at the drive on access since that is the low point at that beach and if you know that beach that huge cut that usually forms in that area will carve that beach out fast. We are awaiting pictures and an update.
