Project Name:

US 113 @ Alms House Road/Speedway Road and US 113 Kruger Road/Wood Branch Road Safety Improvements

Project Limits:

The limits of this project include the intersection of US 113 @ Alms House Road/Speedway Road and the intersection of US 113 @ Kruger Road/Wood Branch Road US 113 Kruger Aerial Image

Project Need

The two intersections were identified as part of DelDOT's 2008 Hazard Elimination Program as having high crash rates. The locations were studied and recommendations were made to address crashes at the intersection. Interim measures were installed in October 2013 and again in October 2014.

Project Overview

Since the beginning of the DelDOT's study of these two intersections, various requests for signalization were made by the general public including providing a signal at one or the other intersection, both intersections or one signal at a combined intersection. Through recent modified studies, it was determined initially to restrict crossing and turning movements at the Kruger Road/Wood Branch Road intersection (implemented in October 2013) to quickly address a continued angle crash problem Median Closure Signing and Striping Plan.

In October 2014, restrictions were installed at the Speedway Road/Alms House Road intersection to further reduce crashes and then additional restrictions were placed in December 2014 NB Left Closure Signing and Striping Plan.

Given continued concerns from the community and continued requests for a traffic signal at one of the study intersections, further analysis and public involvement is occurring to determine the appropriate long-term solution for this project to address traffic safety and operational needs.

Anticipated/Actual Start Date:

Interim improvements were installed in October 2013 and October 2014 with additional modifications occurring in December 2014. These improvements included the restriction of various turning movements at both intersections.

The schedule of implementing future improvements, depending upon the results of the public workshop, has not yet been determined.

Anticipated/Actual Completion Date:
