Railroad repair to close road in Millsboro


Railway construction at Wilson Highway will divert Millsboro traffic this week.

Norfolk Southern railroad will be replacing crossings on Wilson Highway between Mitchell Street and Union Street. The road will be partially closed from 8 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 20, until midnight on Friday, Oct. 24, 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 Wilson Highway to Mitchell Street, then Old Landing Road and East State Street before returning to Wilson Highway.

Although Delaware Department of Transportation notified the public as a public service, people should direct questions to Norfolk Southern at (800) 453-2530.
