The Department of Transportation welcomed fans who will attend the Firefly Music Festival at The Woodlands of Dover International Speedway on June 15-18.
DelDOT's Transportation Management Center staff, in coordination with the city of Dover police and Delaware State Police, will monitor traffic in and around the Dover vicinity to ensure safe travel for motorists. With the expected number of patrons attending the festival, Leipsic Road and Persimmon Tree Road in the vicinity of Dover International Speedway will be closed to through traffic beginning at noon June 15 until the evening of June 18. At the conclusion of the festival, all roads will be reopened. Local residents will not have access through the closure area until the conclusion of the festival.
Camping/RV processing will be located at Dover International Speedway Lot 1 located south of the speedway bordered by U.S. 13, Leipsic Road and Plaza Drive. Traffic from the south will enter Lot 1 from U.S. 13 through Jefferic Boulevard and from the north using Leipsic Road.
Campers/RVs from the north will use state Route 1 to Exit 104 to U.S. 13 to a left turn at Leipsic Road. Should traffic conditions warrant, Exit 104 and Exit 98 from state Route 1 will be closed, and traffic will be directed to Exit 95 to Bay Road onto U.S. 13 North to Lot 1 via Jefferic Boulevard.
Once each vehicle is processed in Lot 1 they will exit at the east end of Lot 1 back to Leipsic Road to their assigned camping area.
For festival patrons that are not camping on Dover International Speedway property, daily parking is available in speedway parking lots. Daily parking lots are accessible from the Main Entrance to Dover International Speedway from U.S. 13.
"Will Call" passes for Firefly will be processed at Delaware Technical Community College located in north Dover; access to Delaware Technical Community College will be via Scarborough Road. Firefly patrons are encouraged have their "will call" passes before being processed for camping.
