TRAFFIC ALERT: DelDOT announces Route 26 roadwork for April 14 to April 18

The State Route 26 Mainline Improvement Project continues with a road closure in Ocean View.

Due to relocation of the sewer force main, Central Avenue will be closed at Route 26 to through traffic. (Vehicles cannot turn from Central Ave. onto Route 26 and vice versa, but both roads are otherwise passable.) Motorists should follow the posted alternative routes.

Look for flaggers on Route 26. Motorists may see lane closures from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in several areas:

• between Woodland Avenue and West Avenue for sewer force main relocation.
• between Route 17 and Powell Farm Road for underground utility relocation.
• between Old Mill Road and Grants Avenue for installation of a storm drain system.

Detours are not required for this. Traffic will alternate, as directed by flaggers. Motorists should drive with caution, slow down in work zones, and never enter a roadway that has been blocked with barriers or cones.

Meanwhile, there will be no lane closures for overhead utility relocation work and removal of items within the right-of-way.
