Daytime lane closures on Route 26 to resume early — Sept. 8

The Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) announced this week that daily lane closures on the Route 26 Mainline Improvement Project will resume on Tuesday, Sept. 8, earlier than originally announced.

DelDOT officials said motorists should anticipate daily lane closures from Monday through Thursday between 9 a.m. and 8 a.m. the following morning. Lane closures will not occur on Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays until at least Oct. 1.

“In an effort to continue to progress the project towards the completion date in September of 2016, DelDOT has concluded that it will be in the best interest of the project, road users and the community to implement daytime lane closures during the weekday to maintain project progress while minimizing as much as possible impacts to motorists and the community,” officials said.
