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.

https://deldot.gov/projects/index.shtml?dc=details&projectNumber=T202109101

After endless construction here, now they decide to add a lane?
Wait they finally are going to add a third NB lane at the 95/295 split?
Really?
Because that is such an obvious need and what seems to be an easy fix, NB at least.

Forum to provide update on traffic study of West Fenwick area

https://www.coastalpoint.com/news/state/forum-to-provide-update-on-traffic-study-of-west-fenwick-area/article_17707526-e83d-11ec-b611-7bc4e9d2dfab.html

DE 54 (from Selbyville) and DE 20 (from Dagsboro, Millsboro, and Seaford) converge in West Fenwick.  Backups on DE 20/54 between there and DE 1 in Fenwick Island are common.

(For US 13 and DE 404)  TRAFFIC ALERT - Sussex County - Intermittent Lane Closures at US 13 and Rifle Range Road Intersection

Quote
DelDOT announces intermittent lane closures at US 13 at Rifle Range Road on Tuesday, June 21st. Work will consist of installing signing, pavement markings and tubular markers to implement intersection safety improvements at the intersection of US 13 and Rifle Range Road in Bridgeville.

The improvements will modify the existing median crossover to prevent traffic on Rifle Range Road from crossing or making a left-turn onto US 13. Traffic from eastbound or westbound Rifle Range Road will only be permitted to make a right-turn onto US 13. Traffic from US 13 will still be able to turn left or right onto eastbound or westbound Rifle Range Road.

The improvements are recommendations from DelDOT's Hazard Elimination Program. This intersection has a history of angle crashes, and the improvements will reduce intersection conflict points and eliminate the majority of cross-traffic, resulting in reductions in crashes at the intersection.

During implementation of the improvements, motorists should expect lane closures and possible traffic delays. Motorists are urged to use caution traveling through the work zone. Once the improvements are complete, motorists coming from the west wanting to travel north on US 13 should utilize S. Main Street to the signalized intersection at US 13 and SR 404. Motorists from the east wanting to travel south on US 13 should utilize Tatman Farm Road to SR 404 west to US 13 north. Directional signs will be installed to guide motorists to alternate routes.

For more information, visit DelDOT's website at www.deldot.gov or tune to WTMC-AM 1380.

Looking at the DelDOT cam at 1 and 16, it looks like they're getting ready to start on split-leveling that intersection.  The equipment and portapotty are east of DE 1, especially on the golf course corner.  Barrels are up on the edges of the median (not blocking any lanes [yet]).

I'm proposing a 2024 roadmeet for this one. Never had a meet in Lower Slower Delaware.

I thought Delawareans just used Slower Delaware, with the lower implied within the Slower.

I certainly wasn't at that one, but now I vaguely recall it being brought up.

Few things:

1.  When is the 295 NB 3 lanes from 95 going to start and be done?
2.  Is 295 SB at 95 done, that is all they are doing?  Is there any chance they are going to do a real fix, like having 295 merge with 2 NOT 1 lane or even better, a flyover for DE-1 traffic.

Construction on the SB 95 273 Ramp is basically wrapping up, they have repaved the ramp and roading leading to Harmony Rd, and they have added a 3rd lane on 273 WB ending as a right turn lane to Harmony road.

Traffic on the off ramp to make a right onto WB 273 moves quickly, and they have a sensor on the ramp which I assume triggers the light to stop backups to 95.

So far this temporary improvement is working and the loss of the free movement with the addition of the traffic signal wasn't detrimental.
