Traffic Pattern Change In Bridgeville Due To Route 13/404 Improvement Project


Bridgeville – The Department of Transportation (DelDOT) advises motorists that a new traffic pattern will be put in place on the Route 13/404 Improvement Project in Bridgeville during the week of November 10, 2008.

Due to construction on Business Route 404 eastbound, traffic is currently being detoured off Business Route 404 East onto Rifle Range Road and then onto Route 13 southbound. Once the traffic pattern has been changed, the detour route will no longer be needed. Business Route 404 traffic will be permitted to use the new Business Route 404 alignment, which has been built to bring traffic perpendicular to Route 13 at the signalized intersection. This improvement provides better visibility and safety for all motorists at the intersection.

In addition, the east service road off of Business Route 404 west has been built, and westbound traffic wishing to access the Royal Farms may begin using this road to access the back of the Royal Farms property.

Message boards will be posted in the area alerting motorists to the new traffic pattern in both areas. The change in traffic pattern is weather dependent, as there is minor work that must be done prior to the traffic pattern actually occurring.
