The Delaware Department of Transportation will close crossovers surrounding the Delaware Turf Sports Complex.
The crossovers between the sports complex and the Thompsonville interchange will be closed 7-11 a.m. Oct. 29 and Nov. 4-5, 11-12 and 18-19 on state Route 1 northbound and southbound. Motorists traveling northbound will be detoured to the Exit 86/North Frederica Interchange to access state Route 1 southbound. Motorists traveling southbound will be detoured to Exit 79/Thompsonville interchange to access state Route 1 northbound
The three crossovers to the north, between the sports complex and the North Frederica interchange, will be closed from noon until to 6 p.m. Oct. 29 and Nov. 4-5, 11-12 and 18-19 to safely facilitate traffic exiting the sports complex. Northbound traffic destined for points south will be detoured to Exit 86/North Frederica interchange where they can then access state Route 1 southbound. Southbound state Route 1 traffic wishing to utilize one of the three closed crossovers north of the venue are encouraged to use Exit 79/Thompsonville Interchange. However, all crossovers from Tub Mill Pond Road/Milford Neck Road, and south should be open by noon.
In an effort to further reduce the impact to residents and businesses, there will be a left-turn only on state Route 1 northbound at the Tub Mill Pond Road intersection to allow motorists to access state Route 1 southbound and Tub Mill Pond Road to the west.
