Last September the closure of the intersection of Route 1 and 30 (Wilkins Road) Crossover just south of Milford took place in preparation for the new overpass that will connect Wilkins Road and Cedar Neck Road just south of the business 1. On Tuesday, November 27. The Department of Transportation (DelDOT) announced that construction will begin on Monday, December 3 for the Route 1 and Route 30 Grade Separated Intersection in Milford. This project will consist of all erosion and sediment control work; embankments, construction of the bridge, ramps, and acceleration/deceleration lanes plus milling and paving.

George & Lynch, Inc. of Dover submitted a bid of $9,222,466.02, the lowest of six bids received. Construction is scheduled for completion within 418 calendar days, pending weather. During this phase of the project, there are no lane restrictions or closures. Lane restrictions will be announced at a later date.

In their continuing effort to create safer traffic patterns on Delaware highways, DelDOT will be constructing multiple overpasses in the area between now and the year 2016 including: Route 1, Route 30/Wilkins Road; Route 1, South Frederica; Route 1, Little Heaven; Route1, Northeast Front Street and Route 1, Thompsonville Road. For further information on the closure of the intersection of Route 1 and 30 (Wilkins Road) Crossover or the future construction of the overpass connecting Wilkins Road and Cedar Neck Road contact the Delaware Department of Transportation at 800-652-5600 or 302-760-2080.

Changes that can be expected due to the Route 1 and 30 intersection closure will include:

– Modifications to the Johnson Road Crossover. In order not to relocate the current safety issue to another intersection, the crossover at Johnson Road will be modified so that motorists can only make right turns from Johnson Road onto and off of Route 1. Motorists will still be able to make left turns from northbound Route 1 onto westbound Johnson Rd. Motorists will not be able to make left turns from eastbound Johnson Rd onto northbound Route 1. These interim modifications will be made within the next couple months, but will then be permanently implemented during the construction of the grade separation project coming next year.

– Modifications at other nearby Crossovers. The first crossover to the north of Wilkins Road on Route 1 will be removed as it is not adequate to accommodate northbound vehicles wishing to make a u-turn. Northbound Route 1 traffic wishing to make a u-turn should use the existing crossover near Beaver Dam Road and Bucks Road.
