Good lord the DEMB has a lot of construction, when will it ever end or is it like painting the Golden Gate Bridge(GGB); forever?

Yeah, they do.  Frequently there's a lane closed in each direction.  The bridges are 60+ or 70+ years old so increased maintenance is expected, but for those driving the bridges every day (or at least every week), it's rare to drive over the bridge without something going on.

TRAFFIC ALERT - New Castle County - James Street Bridge to Close for a Day

It says detours will be posted.  I guess they'll have to be creative, since the only other way on or off Old Airport Road (the name of the road south of the bridge) is the RIRO with DE 141 southbound.  I know why they're doing it on a Saturday, though: Friday is a holiday, and there's a school district bus lot on that road.

I just opened the DE 30 Declassification site and the PDFs on the page are now 404s... (https://deldot.gov/projects/archived/proposed-SR30-declassification-west-of-Millsboro/)

They were still up as recently as two weeks ago as I went there when updating the Delaware Route 30 page on the site.

If anyone had not seen them, they were just simple maps showing the truncation.

DelDOT finally posted the workshop materials from the SR 1 - Corridor Capacity Preservation Program meetings from early this month, detailing plans to convert SR 1 between Dover and Five Points into an expressway (sort of... every link is broken except for the GIS page with the full plans).

Highlights include preliminary plans for a number of new grade separations, new frontage roads, intersection and driveway removals, master plans for Little Heaven and Frederica, and the addition of a third lane between Dover and the US 113 split in Milford. Curiously the new third lane isn't depicted as extending through Dover using the existing roadbed that's striped as a wide left shoulder, though I imagine that's due to anything north of Dover being out of the project's scope.

This link braking must be a full-on issue then not directly related to the DE 30 page...

So looking at the plans... does this mean that the portion of DE-1 between Dover and Milford would become a fully controlled access six-lane freeway? It would be certainly nice to have six lanes and controlled access on that portion, along with possibly a 65 mph speed limit... I recall driving it a couple years ago during the summer and it was quite full and fast moving (70+ mph) for being non-limited-access design.

The plans show limited access controls all the way to Five Points, though a few at-grade turnarounds and what appears to be a few driveways remain south of Milford.

^ Some of those look more like RIRO than actual interchange ramps.  Or are ramps with VERY TIGHT turning radii.  Wouldn't quite call that a freeway.  Nor do I expect them to actually build 6 lanes.
