(For DE 1/DE 16)  TRAFFIC ALERT - Sussex County - New Route 1 Northbound Travel Pattern at Route 16 Begins Next Week

The (beginning of the) end of an era.  Sorta.  :(   :biggrin:

That intersection was (for me) a landmark on trips to the DE beaches.  Unless I used DE 26 to Bethany or DE 54 to Fenwick/North OC.

At least the old NB roadway will have one last summer tourist season weekend before the relocation.

I wonder how work is progressing on constructing the southbound ramps so southbound DE 1 can be shifted. Looks like things haven’t progressed much in the past few months. I’ve been watching construction of this interchange progress through the DelDOT traffic cameras.

Reconstruction of the intersection between SR 2 and Red Mill / Polly Drummond Hill Roads is about to start.

The project is slated to add an extra NB thru lane on Red Mill Road through the intersection, add an extra EB left turn lane onto Polly Drummond Hill Road, and provide bike / pedestrian facilities. That death trap of a diagonal entrance to the BP on the SE corner is slated to be filled in as well IIRC.

DelDOT and Newark are looking at removing the signal at W Park Place and Apple Road, and possibly even the signal a couple blocks down at Orchard Road as well.

https://www.newarkpostonline.com/news/deldot-proposes-to-remove-traffic-light-on-west-park-place/article_9f06eee0-4e05-58f4-805c-e71e3da5f8f0.html

Those are the only two signal arrays in Newark remaining with any character, especially at W Park Place/Orchard Road.



W Park Place at Orchard Road in 2017



W Park Place at Apple Road in 2014

DelDOT's moving ahead with testing out the decommissioning of the light at Park Place and Apple Road.

I might have to ask around and see if I can bum one of the signals off them before they get scrapped.  :-P
Get two and I'll meet ya. Actually get three for signalian.

Never mind lol

Newark Post - Amid public outcry, Newark halts plan to remove traffic light

Quote
Facing blowback from the public, Newark officials are pumping the brakes on a plan to remove the traffic light at the corner of West Park Place and Apple Road.

Residents of the area packed into council chambers last week to ask council members to reconsider their earlier decision to approve the Delaware Department of Transportation’s request to convert the intersection to a four-way stop.

Quote
DelDOT recommended removing the light because it said neither the traffic volume nor the number of crashes at the intersection justify having a light there. Officials cited studies showing that converting unnecessary traffic lights to four-way stops actually make intersections safer.

Quote
Ultimately, council decided it will hold a public meeting so residents can hear from DelDOT on the issue, and vice versa. If public sentiment remains strongly opposed to removing the light, council will schedule a vote to reject the plan.

In the interim, the plan will remain on hold.

(For DE 24)  CM/GC, North Millsboro Bypass, US 113 to SR24 has been awarded

I wonder if this bypass will be an unnumbered road or will be assigned a route number.

Wow, I didn’t think DE 24 was gonna be rerouted onto it since the bypass would add a lot of mileage to the route since it would have to take US 113 northwest to connect to the west end of the bypass. I thought maybe it would have remained unnumbered and been signed “To DE 24” eastbound and “To US 113” westbound

Unnumbered a la the POW/MIA Pkwy. on Dover's sw side, although that road ought to be signed "TO [DE 15 shield]" West Dover bound, and "TO [US 13 shield]" South Dover bound.

There are signs along DE 15 at Saulsbury Road and North Street and the connector road from Wyoming Mill Road that sign the POW/MIA Parkway southbound as “To US 13”. In addition, a sign along the connector road from Wyoming Mill Road signs the POW/MIA Parkway northbound as “To DE 8”. However, there is no to  signage for DE 8 or DE 15 along US 13.

It adds about 2 miles.  But avoids the 1-way/1-lane slog through downtown Millsboro and a very long wait for the light at the 24/113 intersection.

I wonder if DelDOT will designate the alignment through Millsboro as DE 24 Business once the bypass is completed.

Considering the apparent reluctance of DelDOT to establish any new routes, I doubt it. Old SR 1 along Bay Road and old U.S. 301 between SR 71 and SR 299 became unnumbered roads. Plus the last state route added to the system was SR 404 Business in 1999 (not counting the renumbering of SR 2 along Elkton Road in Newark to SR 279). The bannered routes for SR 24, SR 30 and SR 54 have since come and gone.
