Time to Carbon Copy more Signs!

Every time I see a Wilmington News Journal sign tidbit such as today's http://www.delawareonline.com/article/20090112/NEWS/90112006/-1/updates?GID=C1R9A4E9Z/HpnFG4+iSdxRnJNbSThsoydRJACoK+G9I%3D, I know that DelDOT is yet again carbon copying signs that usually don't need replacing in their current form (but should be updated to reflect new information, which they will not be). All the while the state budget continues to run [...]

15 years later…

It was 1992 when I first noticed large mounds of dirt rising within the cloverleaf ramps of the Interstate 95 interchange with Delaware 7 and then fledgling-Delaware 1. The mounds were created in anticipation of a planned interchange upgrade between the Delaware Turnpike and new SR 1 Turnpike. 15 years later, the mounds remain, covered [...]

The Maine Light is off again…

An inside joke, sort of... The fact of the matter is that Maine @ AARoads is once again up to date with all our existing coverage that includes a short excursion in the Kittery and York areas as part of our July-August New England road trip. That joins Maine with Arkansas as the only two [...]

The 2008 State Budget for Delaware passed this Summer and in it are changes that will affect many drivers through Delaware. At stake in the $3.28-billion budget are increases in tolls on both Interstate 95 at the Delaware state line and the SR 1 Turnpike between Dover and Christiana.

New U.S. 301 Toll Road in Delaware

After on and off debate for well over 35 years, Delaware officials have finally chosen a path for U.S. 301 that most people can live with. South of the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal in the bustling community of Middletown, whose city limits have expanded dramatically in recent years to accommodate the pervasive sprawl of the [...]
