Over a dozen Sussex roads to see conversion to asphalt

Sussex County, Del. – A number of roadways will be seeing upgrades in the near future. DelDOT has announced it will be converting 19 roads in the county from tar and chip roads to asphalt.

The work will include ADA and guardrail upgrades, pipe replacements, striping, top soiling and restoration.

State Senator Brian Pettyjohn says that as we continue to see more development in the county, residents can expect to see more roads converted in the future.

“It’s a smoother ride on those roads. It’s a significant increase in the amount to actually do it compared to tar and chip. The asphalt costs many times more, but it lasts longer. There’s less maintenance that has to happen on it.”

Work will begin this Monday on Deep Branch Road in Milton. Work hours will be from 7 AM to 7 PM Monday to Friday, and all work is expected to be finished this November.

The following roads will be converted:

Deep Branch Road from Route 14 to Reynolds Road, Milton
