Testing of the Lewes Drawbridge over the Lewes-Rehoboth Canal between Savannah Road and Anglers Roads Lewes, and the Rehoboth Drawbridge over the Lewes-Rehoboth Canal on Route 1A/Rehoboth Avenue between Canal Street and Atlantic Avenue, Rehoboth, is set for 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and/or Thursday evenings, the weeks of June 15 and June 22.

DelDOT’s contractor will start testing the opening and closing of the drawbridges at night to ensure the new system is working correctly.
