Feb. 27 at Del Tech Student Services Center Dining Hall, 21179 College Drive, Georgetown
The Delaware Department of Transportation will hold a public input workshop from 4 to 7 p.m. Feb. 27 at the Delaware Technical and Community College Owens Campus Student Services Center Building Dining Hall, 21179 College Drive, Georgetown, on proposed alternatives for the grade separation of U.S. 113 at state Route 18/state Route 404 in Georgetown.
The proposed project was identified to address transportation needs in the U.S. 113 Corridor Improvement Plan.
The signalized intersection at U.S. 113 and state Route 18/state Route 404 experiences a failing level of service during peak hours with the worst traffic congestion occurring in the summer months. Recent and proposed development in the surrounding area and throughout the U.S. 113 corridor will continue to increase traffic volumes and congestion at the intersection.
The purpose of this project is to preserve mobility for local residents and businesses while providing highway improvements that reduce congestion, decrease frequency and severity of accidents and accommodate anticipated growth in local, seasonal and through traffic.
The needs of the U.S. 113 Corridor Improvement Plan in the Georgetown area are meeting the growing traffic demand created by existing and future development; addressing safety issues; preserving a transportation corridor; considering modal interrelationships; and maintaining consistency with state and local plans for transportation systems.
Public parking is available on campus for attendees. Members of the project team will be on hand to explain the information presented and answer questions. Comment forms will be provided. Comments may be submitted at the workshop; online at deldot.gov; or sent to DelDOT Community Relations, P.O. Box 778, Dover, DE 19903. The comment deadline is March 30.
