This project will add turn lanes on each leg of the US 9 /SR 5 intersection in the town of Harbeson, Delaware. The geometry of the intersection will also be shifted slightly in order to accommodate the turning movements of large trucks from US 9 EB to SR 5 SB. The project will include culvert replacements, drainage improvements and sidewalk facilities.
This intersection was identified as a site needing safety improvements by the 2009 Hazard Elimination Program. Along with numerous accidents, there have been many incidences of trucks colliding with the cemetery wall on the southwest corner of the intersection.
Construction is scheduled to begin Spring 2018 and is anticipated be completed in Fall 2019.
