Road work north of Hyetts Corner Road and south of Port Penn Road over the weekend, reopens 5 a.m. Monday.

DelDOT will close a section of Route 13 this weekend to install drainage pipes near Biddles Corner between Odessa and the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal.

Route 13 will be closed between Hyetts Corner Road and Port Penn Road at 7 p.m. on Friday, March 17 through Monday, March 20 at 5 a.m. Traffic will detour using Pole Bridge Road and Port Penn Road.

“The change will make it so there is no disruption to the school transportation system,” a DelDOT spokeman said.

Truck traffic is urged to use State Route 1 as the alternate route.
