The Delaware Department of Transportation will close crossovers surrounding the DE Turf Sports Complex in Frederica.
The crossovers between the sports complex and the Thompsonville interchange will be closed from 7 a.m. until 11 a.m. Sept. 16 and 17 on state Route 1 northbound and southbound. Motorists traveling northbound will be detoured to the Exit 86/North Frederica Interchange to access state Route 1 southbound. Motorists traveling southbound will be detoured to Exit 79/Thompsonville Interchange to access state Route 1 northbound.
The three crossovers to the north, between the Sports Complex and the North Frederica interchange, will be closed from noon until to 6 p.m. Sept. 16 and 17 to safely facilitate traffic exiting the Sports Complex. Northbound traffic destined for points south will be detoured to Exit 86/North Frederica interchange where they can then access state Route 1 southbound. Southbound state Route 1 traffic wishing to utilize one of the three closed crossovers north of the venue are encouraged to use Exit 79/Thompsonville Interchange. However, all crossovers from Tub Mill Pond Road/Milford Neck Road, and south should be open by noon.
In an effort to further reduce the impact to residents and businesses, there will be a left-turn only on state Route 1 northbound at the Tub Mill Pond Road intersection to allow motorists to access state Route 1 southbound and Tub Mill Pond Road to the west.
Message boards will be displayed to notify motorists of the upcoming traffic patterns.
