TRAFFIC ALERT: DelDOT announces Route 26 roadwork for March 31 to April 4

The State Route 26 Mainline Improvement Project continues with a road closure in Ocean View until May 9, weather pending.

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 from March 31 to April 4. Motorists should continue to expect lane closures from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in several areas:

• between Woodland Avenue and Tyler Drive for relocation of sewer force mains
• between Route 17 (Roxanna Road) and Powell Farm Road for utility relocations.

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 the installation of a new pump station west of Irons Lane.
