Route 5 work expected to be completed near end of March

March 20, 2019

Weather has delayed the work schedule of the Route 5 bridge replacement project at the Route 9 intersection in Harbeson. Now, work is expected to be completed on Thursday, March 28, said DelDOT spokesman C.R. McLeod. In early April, DelDOT will close Route 9 to replace another bridge at the intersection for a project expected to take about a month. The work is part of a $3.5 million intersection improvement project that includes through and turn lanes, widening to accommodate truck traffic, sidewalks, curbs and drainage and stormwater improvements.
