TRAFFIC ALERT: Nighttime road closures in Selbyville-Frankford area changed to Aug. 11

The Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) announced on Aug. 7 that temporary road closures originally scheduled for overnight between Aug. 6 and 7 had been rescheduled to overnight between Aug. 11 and 12, due to weather conditions. The closures will begin at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 11, and end at 5 a.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 12. They will be in effect to move an oversized load -- a home structure -- from Selbyville to Frankford.

The following roadways will experience temporary road closures:
• Route 113
• McCabe Road
• Pepper Road
• Shockley Town Road
• Gum Road

Delaware State Police will accompany the oversized load to help alert motorists of the closure and provide intersection control along the route. The move will take approximately six hours at a speed of 10 miles per hour, officials said.

Motorists are being advised to be aware of lane shifts and expect delays.
