Improvements to come for Route 113 in Sussex County

Improvements to come for Route 113 in...

SUSSEX COUNTY, Del. - After over a decade in the making Delaware now has a plan of action in place to make it easier for residents to get around Sussex County with an all new Route 113 Corridor Improvement Plan.

The plan involves 17 different projects that will cover about 30 miles of route 113 from Ellendale to Millsboro. 

The first two that DelDot is hoping to start at the beginning of 2018, which they already received funding for, will make it easier for traffic flow in Ellendale and Georgetown.

The projects proposed are grade separated interchange. 

"It's a series of individual projects like that 17 of those. 14 grade separated intersections basically alleviating some of the red lights and some of the potential for accidents so we will also enhance safety as well as mobility," explains Gov. John Carney. 

Rep. Ruth Briggs-King adds, "It's improving the old, it's some widening, it's getting some loops so the traffic isn't stopping it keeps a good traffic flow. I️ think they'll be safer intersections because of that." 

A public meeting on the first two projects in Ellendale and Georgetown will be held before the end of the year to better inform the public of the plans.
