The State Route 26 Mainline Improvement Project has begun in Clarksville.
On Monday, Jan. 27, to Friday, Feb. 7, from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m., the eastbound lane of Route 26 will be closed from Powell Farm Road to Route 17 (Roxana Road) for clearing and grubbing (removing trees, shrubs, stumps and rubbish).
Detours are not required. Traffic will alternate, as directed by flaggers.
Meanwhile, there will be no lane closures for various utility relocation projects from Clarksville to Ocean View.
George & Lynch are the contractors for this 4-plus-mile widening project from Assawoman Canal in Bethany Beach to St. George’s U.M. Church in Clarksville. Foul weather, such as rainstorms and blizzards, could push the schedule beyond the anticipated September of 2016 end date.
