Sunday Morning Motorists May Be Delayed On Route 1


Rehoboth Beach – The Department of Transportation advises motorists that Delaware Electric Cooperative (DEC) will be replacing electric lines on Route 1/Coastal Highway south of Five Points in the area of Shady Road and Marsh Road.

The electric line improvements will require traffic stoppages both northbound and southbound on Sunday, November 23, 2008 between 7:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. The Delaware State Police will assist each of the five times traffic must be stopped to allow for the lines to be taken across the highway. Each stoppage should be for no more than 10-15 minutes.

Also during this time, a staging/work area for the DEC vehicles will require a lane closure on Shady Road and on Marsh Road.

All lines will be de-energized during the operation.
