DelDOT’s contractor, George & Lynch, will open the new ramps providing Route 1 northbound access to Cedar Neck Road as of Aug. 7.

The new on and off ramps on Route 1 northbound will offer the only access to Cedar Neck Road, and the existing Cedar Neck Road will be closed permanently at Route 1 northbound.

Message boards will be posted to notify motorists of the new traffic pattern.

The on and off ramps on Route 1 southbound, allowing access to Wilkins Road, were opened Aug. 2.

The ramps are part of a construction project establishing an overpass at Route 1 and Route 30 in an effort to make this intersection safer for motorists.
