Bay Road (old U.S. 113) north
Bay Road (former U.S. 113) emerges from the SR 1 Turnpike at the parclo interchange (Exit 95) with SR 10 (Lebanon Road) and the north gate to Dover A.F.B. SR 10 begins here and travels west along Lebanon Road to State Street (former U.S. 113 Alternate) and U.S. 13 (DuPont Highway) at Camden. Photo taken 08/05/07.
The Dover A.F.B. north gate entrance ties into the intersection of SR 10 (Lebanon Road) and Bay Road. A U.S. 13 trailblazer directs motorists north for the Puncheon Run Connector west to southbound or to remain along Bay Road north for northbound. Photo taken 08/05/07.
Mileage sign remaining from when Bay Road carried U.S. 113 north to U.S. 13. Connections with U.S. 13 will leads motorists eventually to Wilmington, but Bay Road otherwise is considered a local arterial. Photo taken 08/05/07.
SR 1 shifts west from Bay Road along the St. Jones River before looping back east over the arterial ahead of the Puncheon Run Connector. A northbound on-ramp provides direct access to the northbound toll road for Smyrna and Wilmington from Dover A.F.B. and SR 10 (Lebanon Road). Photo taken 01/15/17.
Lafferty Lane ties into Bay Road south of the SR 1 Turnpike northbound on-ramp. SR 1 bypasses Dover to the east, next meeting U.S. 13 at Scarborough Road near Dover Downs. Photo taken 08/05/07.
Interests to U.S. 13 south should take the Puncheon Run Connector west from Bay Road. The Puncheon Run Connector splits from SR 1 south ahead of the Bay Road under crossing. Photo taken 08/05/07.
A parclo interchange joins the Puncheon Run Connector with Bay Road opposite of the expressway merge onto SR 1 northbound. The east-west route parallels Puncheon Run west to U.S. 13 (DuPont Highway), south of the St. Jones River and north of Camden. Photo taken 08/05/07.
Bay Road passes by DelDOT's Danner campus and the Blue Hen Corporate Center before intersecting Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard (formerly Court Street) west and South Little Creek Road east.
