FREDERICA — For the safety of motorists, the Delaware Department of Transportation will close crossovers along Del. 1 surrounding the Delaware Turf Sports Complex, just southeast of Frederica.

The crossovers between the sports complex and the Thompsonville interchange will be closed on the following dates from 7 a.m. until 11 a.m. on Del. 1 northbound and southbound: Saturday, April 29; Sunday, April 30 and Saturday, May 13.

Motorists traveling northbound will be detoured to the Exit 86/North Frederica Interchange to access Del. 1 southbound, while motorists traveling southbound will be detoured to Exit 79/Thompsonville Interchange to access Del. 1 northbound.

The three crossovers to the north, between the sports complex and the North Frederica interchange, will be closed from noon until 6 p.m. on those dates to safely facilitate traffic exiting the sports complex.

Northbound traffic destined for points south will be detoured to Exit 86/North Frederica interchange where they can then access Del. 1 southbound.

Southbound Del.1 traffic wishing to utilize one of the three closed crossovers north of the venue are encouraged to use Exit 79/Thompsonville Interchange.
However, all crossovers from Tub Mill Pond Road/Milford Neck Road, and south should be open by noon.

In an effort to further reduce the impact to residents and businesses, there will be a left-turn only on Del. 1 northbound at the Tub Mill Pond Road intersection to allow motorists to access Del. 1 southbound and Tub Mill Pond Road to the west.

Message boards will be displayed to notify motorists of the upcoming traffic patterns.
