The Delaware Department of Transportation will hold a public input workshop on the proposed alternatives for the grade separation of U.S. 113 at state Route 18/state Route 404 in Georgetown.

The workshop will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. Feb. 27 at Delaware Technical & Community College, Owens Campus-Student Services Center Building-Dining Hall, 21179 College Drive, Georgetown.

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 traffic congestion occurring in summer months. Recent and proposed development in the surrounding areas and throughout the U.S. 113 corridor will continue to increase traffic volumes and congestion at the intersection. The proposed project was identified to address transportation needs in the U.S. 113 Corridor Improvement Plan.

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 plan in Georgetown 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.

Members of the project team will explain the information presented and answer questions. Interested persons are invited to express their views in writing, giving reasons for or in opposition to the proposed project. Comments will be received during the workshop. Comments also can be mailed to DelDOT Community Relations, P.O. Box 778, Dover, DE 19903; or sent via email to dotpr@state.de.us. The comment deadline is March 30.
