The Delaware Department of Transportation will hold an information meeting from 4 to 7 p.m. April 3 at the Carlisle Fire Company, 615 NW Front St., Milford, to discuss the replacement of the existing railroad crossing, installation of grade crossing signals, cantilever structures and railroad safety gates on U.S. Route 113 between state Route 14 and Kings Highway in conjunction with Delmarva Central Railroad.

Safety improvements are required to provide a smooth crossing, correct drainage issues and add sidewalks compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act. To complete this work, there will be a full closure of U.S. Route 113 northbound and southbound between state Route 14 and Kings Highway in Milford. The work is tentatively scheduled to begin May 5 and is anticipated to be finished by midnight May 19. All work is dependent on weather conditions and other factors. Local businesses will remain open during the road closure, but regional and local detours will be in effect. These detours and other measures to mitigate traffic will be presented at the meeting.

Interested persons are encouraged to attend to discuss the project and detours. Comments will be received during the meeting or can be mailed to DelDOT Community Relations, P.O. Box 778, Dover, DE 19903, or sent via email to
