That is surprising considering that NASCAR had to finish the Cup Series Race yesterday afternoon due to the rain Sunday.

When will they break ground on the DE 1/DE 16 interchange?  Isn't that supposed to begin this year?

The project website indicates that construction will start in June.

Quote
Design and right-of-way acquisitions are complete. Utility relocations began in Fall 2021 and the road/bridge construction work is expected to begin in Spring 2022. The project was awarded to Adel Construction. Construction is expected to begin mid-June.

Public Hearing For The Abandonment & Vacation of a Portion of Millers Neck Road Frankford, Delaware

Five Points Transportation Study Public Meeting

I received an email yesterday noting that this meeting has been postponed due to yesterday's severe weather.

"If I were you I'd take a permanent vacation" (apologies to the Angels).

And that's what some want that stretch of road to do.

Some plans for making improvements to the northern intersection between SR 4 / 7 in Stanton surfaced a little while ago, but interestingly DelDOT seems to be reevaluating the idea of extending Churchmans Road (and presumably SR 58?) through Delaware Park to connect to SR 2 near Milltown Road. That project has been floating around on WILMAPCO's long-range unfunded projects list for a while. Plans for the intersection itself seem pretty limited with only a couple extra turn lanes and lane extensions planned, it seems like they're hoping knocking both projects out without taking a bunch of properties will put a sizable dent in the capacity issues at area intersections.

https://deldot.gov/projects/index.shtml?dc=details&projectNumber=T200011101


Plans for the I-295 NB third lane project got an update recently as well, with a roundabout now planned at the end of the I-95 Airport Road ramp.

I just processed a major subdivision of the Delaware Park property for New Castle County.  I don't know what all they want to do with it, but DelDOT might see an opportunity to come in and take what right-of-way they'd need.  If I see that (I process ROW takings too) I'll post it here.

After endless construction here, now they decide to add a lane?

What they did before was all part of the process to add that 3rd lane. This should be pretty easy to put in a lane now. 

The biggest project with the preferred alternative...even though it'll be 3 lanes for about 1/2 mile prior to the split, we'll still find a lot of crowding into the right 2 lanes from Rt. 1 to that point. 

Still not happy with the way they took I-295 on the SB side and made them lose a lane just after the merge with 95.  Seriously congests 295 now, especially during times when traffic was lighter and no congestion existed earlier.

Agreed.
That area needs a rebuild that I hope someday happens as follows:

-295 SB remains 4 lanes after the 495 N exit
-295 SB becomes 3 lanes after the Newport exit
-295 then splits, the center and right lanes merge onto 95 south 'thru'
   -the left and center lane flyover to serve as the exit for 4A,B,C and 3

Going further

95SB at the 495 merge splits:
-3 lanes are 95 SB thru, 2 lanes are for exits 5-3.

A relocation of the Old Possum Park Road/Possum Park Road intersection is needed because it is too close to the existing Possum Park intersection with St. Regis Drive.

And it's been that way for how long?
