State Route 1B

Home » Guides » Delaware » State Route 1B

SR 1B spurs northeast from SR 1 (Coastal Highway) along State Road to SR 1A (Rehoboth Avenue) in the city of Rehoboth Beach. The state route allows motorists bound for the Rehoboth Beach business district to bypass northern reaches of Dewey Beach and Silver Lake Shores from SR 1 to the south.

A split alignment separates movements to Coastal Highway below the SR 1 bridge across Lewes and Rehoboth Canal. SR 1B southbound follows a combination of Roosevelt and Washington Streets to access SR 1 south while northbound branches away from SR 1 from a northbound off-ramp (Old Bay Road).1
