The road will be partially closed from 8 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 27, until midnight on Friday, Oct. 31, pending weather or other unforeseen circumstances.

Message boards will be posted in advance of the closure, and detour routes will be posted.

The detour will lead from Fire Tower Road to Route 20 (Dagsboro Road), then Iron Branch Road and Fire Tower Road.
