The Delaware Department of Transportation announced nighttime lane closures on the drawbridge over the Lewes-Rehoboth Canal on Route 1A/Rehoboth Avenue, between Canal Street and Atlantic Avenue, Rehoboth, from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Mondays through Thursdays, July 15 through Aug. 28.

DelDOT's contractor will sandblast and paint the underside. Residents can anticipate noise. Flaggers will be onsite to direct motorists.

Part of the bridge rehabilitation project will involve replacing the sidewalks on both sides of the bridge. While the sidewalk on one side of the bridge is being replaced, pedestrians and cyclists may use the other sidewalk.
