Road work postponed

FREDERICA — Due to inclement weather, the work scheduled for this weekend, Feb. 9 and 10, has been postponed until next weekend.

DelDOT announces to motorists that lane closures now will occur at 9 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 16 until 9 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 17. Due to the temperature and rain sensitive nature of this work, Sunday, Feb. 18 will be used as a make-up day pending next week’s weather. The purpose of the lane closure is to complete paving in preparation for an upcoming traffic switch.

At all times, one lane will remain open to motorists; but travelers can anticipate delays in this area.

The lane will be reopened to traffic in time for Monday’s morning commute.

DelDOT’s contractor will close a lane again on Del. 1 northbound near Barratts Chapel Road from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 19 and Tuesday, Feb, 20. pending weather.
