Delaware 404 Business


Delaware 404 Business was designated in 1999 along the original route of Delaware 404 through the town of Bridgeville. Delaware 404 overtook Delaware 404 Alternate at that time to bypass Bridgeville to the north and east.

Delaware 404 Business follows Seashore Highway southeast to Market Street in an industrial area west of the Norfolk Southern Railroad tracks in Bridgeville. The state route continues east along Market Street through the historic district to Main Street, where it combines with U.S. 13 Business south. The tandem travel south by the Heritage Shores golf course community to end where Delaware 404 splits with U.S. 13 (Sussex Highway) at the continuation of Seashore Highway east.

SR 404 Business (Seashore Highway) angles southeast 1.40 miles from the split with SR 404 (Newton Road) to Market Street. Photo taken 04/13/04.
Crossing Bridgeville Branch, SR 404 Business enters the town of Bridgeville. The rural highway intersects Federalsburg Road south and Market Street east at an industrial area adjacent to a NS Railroad crossing.
This assembly was replaced by 2008 to include a business banner. Photo taken 04/13/04.
Older guide signs posted for SR 404 referenced Seashore Points instead of Beaches. SR 404 Business otherwise turns onto Market Street east into the Bridgeville historic district. Photo taken 04/13/04.
Replaced shield assembly referencing the original SR 404 mainline along Market Street. Market Street west becomes Federalsburg Road, which leads southwest to SR 18 at Clarksons Crossroads. Photo taken 04/13/04.
SR 404 Business heads east along Market Street for 0.44 miles to U.S. 13 Business (Main Street). Shields formerly referenced Main Street as the U.S. 13 mainline. Photos taken 04/13/04.
U.S. 13 Business (Main Street) loops west from U.S. 13 (Sussex Highway) through Bridgeville for 2.5 miles. Photo taken 01/15/17.
U.S. 13 Business south & Delaware 404 Business east
SR 404 Business overlaps with U.S. 13 Business south for 1.6 miles. This shield assembly remains from when SR 404 still traveled through Bridgeville. Photo taken 01/15/17.
Leaving the Bridgeville street grid, U.S. 13 Business & SR 404 Business (Main Street) enter a rural swath between Antique Alley and Rifle Range Road. Photo taken 01/15/17.
Main Street originally intersected U.S. 13 (Sussex Highway) at an acute angle opposite the split of Delaware 404 east. Main Street and Seashore Highway were both realigned to meet U.S. 13 at a 90-degree intersection in 2008. Photo taken 01/15/17.
Development of Heritage Shores further changed the south end of Main Street. Passwaters Farm Road loops west to the golf course community and south to U.S. 13 (Sussex Highway) from a new traffic light on U.S. 13 Business & SR 404 Business. Photo taken 01/15/17.
U.S. 13 Business swings out to intersect U.S. 13 (Sussex Highway) and SR 404 (Seashore Highway) at a 90 degree angle. Although through traffic is directed to bypass Bridgeville, a guide sign still directs beach bound motorists headed to Fenwick Island to use U.S. 13 south to SR 20 or SR 24. Photo taken 01/15/17.
Commercial development surrounds the southern end of the Bridgeville business loop. Little remains of the old alignment, as a Wawa gas station was directly built over it. Photo taken 01/15/17.
SR 404 Business ends across from the continuation of SR 404 east along Seashore Highway to Georgetown. The initial route east from U.S. 13 was also realigned to meet Sussex Highway at a 90 degree angle. Photo taken 01/15/17.
U.S. 13 travels south from Bridgeville to Seaford, Blades, Laurel and Delmar. The US highway north continues to Greenwood, Harrington, Camden and Dover. Photo taken 01/15/17.
Delaware 404 (Seashore Highway) angles southeast to combine with Delaware 18 in 1.50 miles. The two overlap from there east to the county seat of Georgetown. Photo taken 01/15/17.
