The Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) reminds drivers to expect extra traffic in Delaware starting as early as Monday, December 21. Planned lane closures on Delaware’s multi-lane highways will be suspended at midnight on Thursday, December 24, and will resume at midnight on Monday, December 28. Traffic accidents and other unpredictable types of transportation incidents may cause lane closures and/or delays.
The warmer than normal temperatures forecast for the holidays means more pedestrians and bicyclists will likely be interacting with traffic this year. Motorists are asked to be on the lookout for both. Pedestrians are reminded to use designated sidewalks and marked road crossings; and bicyclists are reminded to use bike paths and lanes where available. Both should wear bright clothing and use a light, if out during night or low light conditions.
DelDOT’s Transportation Management Center (TMC) will monitor and adjust computerized traffic signal systems in response to increased demand and/or incidents.
Extra personnel will be at the State’s three toll plazas: I-95 Newark Plaza, SR 1 Biddles Corner Plaza, and SR 1 Dover Plaza.
