Daytime lane closures are set for the U.S. Highway 301/state Route 896 bridge, between Bethel Church Road and Red Lion Road, Bear, from 9 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. Aug. 28.
The Delaware Department of Transportation’s Bridge Management Section will inspect the bridge with the northbound right lane and shoulder closed. After the inspection is completed in the northbound right lane, the inspectors will close the northbound left lane. Once the inspection in the northbound direction is completed, the inspectors will proceed to close the southbound right lane and shoulder with a closure of the southbound left lane afterward. One lane will remain open at all times in both directions.
Motorists should be aware that bridge personnel and equipment will be operating in close proximity to the travel lanes and anticipate lane shifts.
