Delaware 300


One of several multi state routes between northern Delaware and northeastern Maryland, SR 300 ventures nearly 12 miles northeast from Everetts Corner to Kenton, Clayton and Smyrna. MD 300 continues the route west to Sudlersville and a J-turn intersection with U.S. 301 beyond Dudley Corners.

Delaware 300 was added to the state route system by 1936. The northern 1.10 miles of the state route overlaps with Delaware 6 along Glenwood Avenue to bypass Downtown Smyrna. SR 6 turns south along U.S. 13 (Dupont Boulevard) as MSR 300 ends.
