On July 1, 2007, the General Assembly passed Senate Bill 155, the Fiscal Year 2008 Bond Bill. The epilogue language of the bill states that DelDOT "shall be prohibited from proceeding with the US 113 South/North Improvements Project in the Lincoln and Milford area as proposed in the Department's Capital Transportation Program" and that the Department should "continue to work to achieve local consensus for an acceptable alignment corridor for the Milford/Lincoln project area."
After further analysis and consultation with local leaders, Secretary Wicks informed the General Assembly on January 23, 2008 that "there is no community consensus for a compromise alternative. Therefore, DelDOT will not be continuing the US 113 North/South Study in the Milford/Lincoln Area."
While the US 113 North/South Study moves ahead in Ellendale, Georgetown, Millsboro, Dagsboro, Frankford and Selbyville, no progress has been made in the Milford Area since July 2007 and no work is currently underway in the Milford/Lincoln Area.
