The Delaware Department of Transportation announced that their contractor Mumford & Miller Concrete Inc. is scheduled to begin work May 8 on a project that involves resurfacing of pavement, pedestrian improvements and sidewalk construction and relocation of utilities along Iron Branch Road and State Street in Millsboro.

Intermittent lane and shoulder closures will occur from 7 a.m. until 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.

The Highway Safety Improvement Program identified this corridor for improvements as part of the U.S. 113 North/South Study. This project is anticipated to be complete by late December.

Motorists should be aware that construction personnel and equipment will be operating in close proximity to the travel lanes and anticipate lane shifts.
