Is Thompson Road one of those development enhancements that either Sussex County or Milford built to encourage economic growth?

I don’t recall a Thompson Road in Milford. Are you referring to Thompsonville Road? That road previously headed east from DE 1 at an intersection before the interchange was built. When the interchange was built, a connector road was built from the interchange west to Church Hill Road.

Yeah that what I set out to type. Either I made an error or autocorrect changed my name.  I’ll have to check GSV previous older images, but I recall seeing no intersection there.

DE 1 had a traffic light with Thompsonville Road, which headed east from DE 1, prior to the interchange being built.

--- Quote from: The Ghostbuster on November 25, 2023, 09:00:25 PM ---This new interchange will be the first interchange along US 113 in the state of Delaware, save for the one at its northern terminus with DE 1. 113 used to continue up DE 1 to end at US 13 in Dover, but was truncated in 2004.

Construction should begin next year on an interchange between US 113 and DE 18/DE 404 in Georgetown. There are also plans to build an interchange at US 113 and DE 16 in Ellendale.

A Hardee's on the site of the project has closed its doors, apparently forever, without waiting for condemnation.

Per the article the land was acquired by the State. So the condemnation process has already taken place, the property sold and it's no longer their building.

The neighborhood Arby's is history too, now.
