The Department of Transportation is welcoming fans to the 2013 NASCAR Race Series Sept. 27-29 at the Dover International Speedway.
DelDOT's Transportation Management Center staff along with the police will monitor traffic in and around the Dover vicinity. The main entrance on Route 13 will be closed Sunday for all southbound traffic when parking at the Dover International Speedway is filled.
When the race is concluded Sunday afternoon, Leipsic Road will be closed to through traffic. An exit route for the Saturday and Sunday races has been established through the cooperation of many groups including the Towne Point Civic Association. Vehicles parked in Lot 1 will be permitted to exit to Buckson Drive onto Townsend Boulevard (next to K-Mart) and the signalized intersection.
Once at the traffic signal, motorists will be able to turn southbound only. Due to special routes being designated just for Saturday and Sunday races, motorists are encouraged to tune to WTMC 1380 AM and to read the variable message board signs surrounding the Dover area.
