Delaware 1 Business


Delaware 1 bypasses the city of Milford along an expressway to the east, while Delaware 1 Business loops west along Rehoboth Boulevard. The state route follows the former alignment of Delaware 14 north to NE Front Street. Delaware 14 originally took Rehoboth Boulevard as part of its north-south alignment to Ocean City, Maryland. It was renumbered as Delaware 1 in 1974, and realigned to end at the Milford bypass via NE Front Street.

North of the Mispillion River and Kent County line, SR 1 Business turns onto Walnut Street for the return to Delaware by way of U.S. 113. Wye interchanges connect both ends with the SR 1 expressway.
