I'm thinking 2024, since construction is "3 years" - the first year will be a lot of geotechnical work and maybe starting some structures, while year 2 will have some structures complete and will probably be the best balance between existing and proposed. Question for now is, what else around there will be worth seeing? US 404 is an obvious choice, can take US 9 to the ferry parking and get some photos there (meet photo with a ferry boat!), 1A and 1B are cool (as well as Bus. 9), can have a premeet or postmeet dip at Broadkill Beach at the east end of 16... okay maybe this writes itself! Hold me to it in a year...

Will definetly keep this in mind, since it is not too far from the Delaware\ Maryland beaches :-)

Further south on US-113, construction is scheduled to start on the north Millsboro bypass in 2023. New interchange construction on US-113 at DE-404 is not scheduled to start until 2024.

Yeah, I'm thinking that I'd like to get down there to get some before pictures prior to the start of construction while the traffic light is still there, but it seems a bit far for a day trip...

Road not found. :D

Pretty sure you mean DE/MD-404.

I think he's referring to an error shield.

Looks like we have until July before traffic moves onto the new bridge. That doesn't leave ALL that much time to see this under construction. Right now I see a gap in meets until June 22. I hereby suggest June 8 as a good date to get down and see construction there. Since it's not all that close to me, I welcome others' input as to what can be paired with this project to make it into a meet, and help co-hosting, if this is going to happen.

Thanks to @74/171FAN for bringing this idea back to life!

Likely headed to Delaware for Christmas, so will have to check out those things solo.

Maybe people can meet at Dogfish Head's HQ in Milton at some point ::bigass:: I enjoyed myself there last month.

While I agree with the sentiment that DE-404 could be a US route (US450?) it's currently only a state highway  :-P

Turn MD/DE 404 into US 50N, and redesignate 50 from Wye Mills to Ocean City as US 50S.

Definitely interested.  I'm going to have to figure out how I balance this with my other travel plans in terms of vacation time, though.

Alps

Sorry, I don't have enough time to put this together, so this meet isn't happening.

Rothman

Pfft.  I'm going to Shady Maple, anyway.

Well I will be in the area to keep my 100% DE clinch whenever US 9 TRUCK opens.

Maybe I (or someone else) could perhaps pick it up?  I'd be nervous as heck to host a roadmeet though, especially one that isn't local to me.

Alex

I'll likely be in Delaware after December 20th. My sister's place is in Kent County so Sussex won't be too far for me should a meet be pushed back to then.
