The Delaware Department of Transportation will host a public workshop from 4 to 7 p.m. July 25 in the cafeteria/atrium of Cape Henlopen High School, 1250 Kings Highway, Lewes, to discuss the proposed rehabilitation of the Rehoboth Drawbridge on state Route 1A/Rehoboth Avenue over the Lewes and Rehoboth Canal and the proposed rehabilitation of the Lewes Drawbridge on Business US 9/Savannah Road over the Lewes and Rehoboth Canal.
