The Delaware Department of Transportation’s contractor, Safety Improvements LLC, will be installing rumble strips statewide.
The purpose of this project is to install edgeline and centerline rumble strips on rural roads and other roadways where rumble strips are required to address road departure crashes. Rumble strips are a proven, low-cost safety countermeasure that addresses road departure crashes. Reducing the frequency of roadway departure crashes is an emphasis area of the Delaware Strategic Highway Safety Plan.
The following locations will have daytime and nighttime lane restrictions:
• Monday and Tuesday, April 7-8 (7 p.m. until 6 a.m.) Route 9 from Shingle Point Road to Nicole Lane
