Delaware State Reference Roads

In addition to the Interstate, U.S., and State highway system in Delaware, a fourth numbering system can be found when traveling upon Diamond State roadways. This system consists of a reference number system. In many cases when approaching an intersection of a local road or neighborhood surface street, signs display "Road XXX" where the X's represent numbers . These designations are generally reserved for maintenance purposes by DelDOT and other transportation officials. However in rural portions of the state the reference numbers act as default road names. For instance, Old Landing Road between Midway at Delaware 1 to Old Landing on Rehoboth Bay is numbered Road 274.

Every segment of the state maintained system is assigned a number. Additionally, old segments or spurs/loops of these roads are often signed with suffixes. An example: Delaware 896 between Interstate 95 and Delaware 71 is assigned the reference number 387. The original routing through Glasgow (now signed as Delaware 896 Business) is assigned reference number 387A. These numbers can be useful if coincided with a good highway map. Otherwise they are just a part of a system used by the state to classify every road.
