I wondered how they were gonna do that intersection with the gas lines right there. I guess we know now. LOL.

Everything can be moved.  It's just how much money they want to spend dealing with it!

Thats very true. I wonder what cane first though, the pipes or the riverfront?!

Based on where they're located in that pic, they were probably moved to that location during a previous construction project.

They are constantly moving things around in that Waterfront area. I was there back in the mid-90's when Kanunaville was the big - and really only - player in that area.  I think it was easier to get around then because the road basically led you there, unlike today where it seems anything involves 3 or 4 turns at lights that will never be synced properly!

Image 2 is the new bus depot for Dart, by the train station.

Looking at GSV, as recently as June 2018, the bus depot site (Walnut [US Bus. 13 NB] and Front Sts.) was home to Hertz, Avis, Budget, and Enterprise used car lots.  Where did they move to?

Also this will be an intercity bus depot, right?  Or will DART have a major presence as well?

You know thats a good question, I have no idea where those businesses moved.

It will be the official Dart bus station & maybe even the bolt bus & Chinese bus stop as well.

I wish they would have built a connector bridge to the train station, to add connectivity.

They moved the rental cars to a surface lot that had been used for paid parking.  It has made parking at the station much more difficult (I had to park on the street to catch a train to a meeting and have a co-worker move my car into our office garage because all the garages were full).

They have like 3 parking garages in front of the train station dont they? They were all full!?? Thats crazy that definitely means it’s time for some skyscrapers & underground parking.

One is quite small, and another is only open to monthly parkers.

Creativity behind DelDOT VMS's has become news fodder for a Salisbury TV station (and its sister serving the Delaware beaches).

I used to work with Scott in my old job!  He's a really good guy.  I suggested one and apparently it was put on a VMS somewhere, but I never saw it.

Apparently 141 has been under construction since the 70’s.

If only these people knew it was their own neighbors that hold back road construction in Delaware

DelDOT announces plans for first Georgetown overpass, third lane

https://www.coastalpoint.com/news/business/deldot-announces-plans-for-first-georgetown-overpass-third-lane/article_f75b4684-5e47-11ea-b553-0745813c7fd0.html

This overpass would bring DE 18/404 over US 113 just east of DelTech.

no, it's clearly just timetable changes. the article isn't that long; it would've taken less time to just read it than to post that speculation.

It looks like DelDOT is planning on adding a dynamic shoulder lane to I-95 SB between DE 141 and DE 58 in an upcoming project that'll rehab the pavement through the marsh, as well as widen the DE 58 exit to two lanes and replace the WB yield with a traffic signal. This managed shoulder lane will be the first of its kind in the state to my knowledge.

The one thing about hard shoulder running is that DelDOT should be prepared to provide significantly more and better freeway service patrol (FSP) units along that part of I-95, so that stalled vehicles and crashes can be quickly resolved or pushed to a pull-off area.  The DelDOT FSP units assigned to that area should all be 3/4 ton or 1 ton pickup trucks or wreckers with Diesel engines, heavy-duty transmissions and have heavy-duty push bumpers on the front (I have seen the DelDOT FSP trucks on the road but have not had the opportunity to look at one up-close like I have with the Maryland and Virginia trucks).

Absolutely, the write-up they provided talked about a closed-circuit camera system they plan to set up to allow them to monitor it continually. The straight shot through the marsh should be relatively easy to monitor, sight obstruction wise.

I edited my comments above as you posted this. 

Agree about the straight shot view there - ideally there should be cameras facing both ways on each pole, which allows the TMC operators to double check a suspected blockage from different angles. 

Wonder if DelDOT is considering a stall detection system too?

The state and local police vehicles need to be kept well stocked with shovels and body bags.

Wait wait, FSP does provide good service to that part of 95. They clear accidents pretty quickly as well as removing objects from the road.

Shit down the road by the rest area going south on 95. This one state trooper pulls over trucks everyday in the same area.

Also why more body bags & shovels Belt? The marsh is a little further back.

Ahhh so they are gonna run the lane from the 141 C/D lane exit? All the way to the 38?

I remember saying a while ago which side would they add a lane, on the 141 side or the 295 side.

It would be really interesting if this random event causes the entire nation to end up AET in 2020 and they don't go back.
