Route 17 closure continues

A segment of Roxana Road (Route 17) remained closed early this week for removal and replacement of failed crossroad pipes by Department of Transportation (DelDOT) crews. DelDOT most recently alerted motorists that the road closure of the road between Bixler Road and Phillips Road near Selbyville had been extended until Sunday, March 2, due to weather conditions.

The road was scheduled to re-open at 6 p.m. or sooner on Sunday, March 2, officials said last week. No new timetable for the road's reopening has been released. Local access is being maintained for residents and emergency vehicles. Motorists are being advised to use the posted detour routes. Traffic alerts and traveler information are available at or motorists can tune to WTMC-AM 1380.
