The left northbound lane of Route 1 near the Indian River Inlet bridge has been reopened, and both lanes are available a short distance farther north. 

Waves breached the dunes along northbound Route 1 between Access Road A and Inlet Road north of the Indian River Inlet bridge this morning, pushing water onto the highway. Delaware Department of Transportation crew members are continuing work to restore the dunes. Go to for real-time travel advisories. See DelDOT traffic cams and travel maps at
