State Sen. Gerald Hocker, R-Ocean View, speaks at DelDOT’s public meeting this past April on plans to alleviate traffic congestion in the Millsboro area. A public workshop on the U.S. 113 North/South Study update will be held Wednesday, Oct. 14 at the Millsboro Town Center.

MILLSBORO – Delaware’s Department of Transportation and Federal Highway Administration will present an update on the U.S. 113 North/South Study for the Millsboro South area at a public workshop Wednesday, Oct. 14.

The workshop will run from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Millsboro Town Center.

With the previous Blue Alternative of an eastern bypass of Millsboro, Dagsboro and Frankford is no longer considered, the project is now focused on providing on-alignment improvements along existing U.S. 113 with a proposed two-lane connector road between U.S. 113 and SR 24 to help relieve current and future traffic congestion in downtown Millsboro.

No formal presentation will be made.

Persons attending will have the opportunity to review display boards showing the history of the project and the current alternatives under consideration.

DelDOT representatives will be available to discuss the project and attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and comment on the project.

The Millsboro Town Center is located at 322 Wilson Highway.

The location is accessible to persons having disabilities. Any person having special needs or requiring special aid, such as an interpreter for the hearing impaired, is requested to contact DelDOT by phone or mail one week in advance.

Citizens are invited to express their views in writing, giving reasons for support of or in opposition to, the proposed project. Comments will be received during the workshop or they can be mailed to: DelDOT Public Relations, P.O. Box 778, Dover, DE 19903. When applicable, DelDOT offers the opportunity to fill out a questionnaire online which will automatically get emailed to DelDOT Public Relations.
