DelDOT’s Coastal Corridors Study is focused on identifying transportation solutions for east-west routes in Sussex County including Route 16 and Routes 404/9 between US 113 and SR 1 as well as Redden Road and other local roads in the area. These roadways represent the primary east-west corridors in the northern part of Sussex County that are currently congested or are at risk for congestion based on anticipated growth.
