Project Description:

This project will add turn lanes on each leg of the US 9 /SR 5 intersection in the town of Harbeson, Del. The geometry of the intersection is to be shifted slightly as well in order to accommodate the turning movements of large trucks. The project will include drainage improvements and some sidewalk facilities.

Project Justification:

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.

Project Schedule:

Advanced utility relocations are occurring during Summer 2018. Construction is expected to begin in Fall 2018 and be completed in Spring 2020
