Dangerous Sussex County intersection to be transformed into four-way stop

SUSSEX CO., Del. – In 2020, crews are going to be fixing up a notoriously dangerous intersection that’s located near the Bayhealth Hospital in Sussex County.

The Johnson Road and Cedar Creek Road intersection has seen many accidents over the years. In fact, in 2012 crews narrowed lanes and installed rumble strips on Cedar Creek Road in an effort to get people to slow down, but it didn’t work.

To solve the problem, crews will be installing two more stop signs to make it a four way stop.

Rep. Bryan Shupe (R) District 36 said, “DelDOT has a timeline. They would like this to be completed in the spring and to put rumple strips and also some other safety measures like blinking lights also to get people used to the four way stop that will be here before that actually goes live.”

This likely isn’t the only traffic issue that’s going to be addressed next year.

We’re told the State and City are actually working together on a comprehensive plan for the entire area. Public workshops will begin in 2020.
