No construction on Delaware’s beach routes this weekend

Landmark Indian River Inlet Bridge is now open on Route 1; Route 54 is completed

For the first time in several years, all major routes to Delaware’s beaches will be free of construction. According to officials from The Department of Transportation (DelDOT), motorists will have a much easier time accessing Delaware’s renowned resort beaches this summer season. There will be no lane closures, or major construction on any of the major beach routes in Sussex County this Memorial Day Weekend.

Major work on the vital east – west connection to Fenwick Island via Route 54 is complete, with all lanes open to traffic.

In addition, earlier this week, all four lanes on the new Indian River Inlet Bridge opened to traffic, ending a multi-year project that involved numerous lane closures, and shifting traffic patterns. The pedestrian walkway is scheduled to open by Friday.

DelDOT announces that all mainline lanes of Route 54 are open and it invites visitors to come to the area this holiday weekend.    In April, DelDOT began working closely with Route 54 business owners and its contractor Mumford & Miller to reach the goal of substantially completing construction on Route 54.  Mainline paving work on Route 54 between SR 20 and the Mallard Lakes development is complete and all lanes are currently open along this corridor to the resort area.  

 Minimal construction signage and materials will remain on site as the contractor will work to complete minor construction tasks after the holiday weekend.
