As part of the on-going new U.S. 301 project, the Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) has announced that S.R. 1 northbound between Pole Bridge Road and Roth Bridge will be closed at 7 p.m. on Friday, September 22 until 10 a.m. on Saturday, September 23.

The closure is necessary for the installation of structural components for the new US 301 bridge over SR 1.

Beginning at 6 p.m. on Friday, September 22, motorists should expect a single lane closure along SR 1 northbound before Pole Bridge Road with the full closure of SR 1 northbound at 7 p.m. on Friday, September 22.

In addition, at 7 p.m. on Friday, September 22, the right lane will be closed along US Route 13 northbound from Bayview Road to Pole Bridge Road until 10 a.m. on Saturday, September 23 to allow for the free right-turn movement of the detoured traffic from SR 1 northbound to Pole Bridge Road and onto US 13 northbound.

Motorist should also expect a single lane closure along SR 1 southbound, prior to the Roth Bridge beginning at 7 p.m. on Friday, September 22 until 10 a.m. on Saturday, September 23.

During this time, motorists should follow the posted detour to Exit 142/Pole Bridge Road onto US 13 north and return to SR 1 via the free ramp.

Due to the inconvenience caused by this closure, the toll will be waived at the Exit from SR 1 northbound to Pole Bridge Road.
