[ARCHIVED] April 3 Information Meeting regarding Rt 113 RR Crossing Replacement/Closure

The Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) is holding an information meeting to discuss the replacement of the existing railroad crossing, installation of grade crossing signals, cantilever structures, and railroad safety gates on Rt 113 between Rt 14 and Kings Highway in conjunction with Delmarva Central Railroad. Safety improvements are required to provide a smooth crossing, correct drainage issues, and add sidewalks compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.  

To complete this work, there will be a full closure of Rt 113 northbound and southbound between Rt 14 and Kings Highway.  The work is tentatively scheduled to begin on Friday, May 5 and is anticipated to be finished by midnight on Friday, May 19.  All work is dependent on weather conditions and other factors. All local businesses will remain open during the road closure, but regional and local detours will be in effect.  These detours and other measures to mitigate traffic will be presented at the meeting.

The Public Information Meeting will be held from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. on Monday, April 3 at the Carlisle Fire Company, 615 Northwest Front Street in Milford. Interested persons are invited to attend to discuss the project and detours.  Comments will be received during the meeting or can be mailed to DelDOT Community Relations, P.O. Box 778, Dover, DE 19903 or sent via email to
