Project Limits:

The project limits are SR 1 from north of the SR 273 Interchange to the Roth Bridge, and including supporting interchanges.

Project Need:

The project needs are to address congestion, improve system connectivity, improve safety at high crash locations, ensure emergency access and evacuation and provide support and local access for existing and committed development in New Castle County.

Project Description:

The project consists of widening SR 1 by adding a travel lane in each direction, widening bridges to accommodate the additional travel lanes, and reconfiguring the supporting interchanges at SR 273, US 40, US 13/Tybouts Corner, and SR 72.

Project Timeline:

The project is currently in project development, progressing through the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process. Construction funding has been indefinitely delayed due to current transportation funding constraints. Environmental work is continuing in order to complete the Environmental Assessment document.
