Del. Officials Say They Will Close Dangerous Median In Georgetown

Posted:

GEORGETOWN, Del. – State transportation officials say they are shutting down a median crossover in Sussex County because it has been the scene of several accidents in recent years.

Transportation authorities say they have chose to close the crossover at the intersection of U.S. Route 113 and Kruger Road/Woods Branch Road near Georgetown on Oct. 16.

Just this week, a tractor-trailer driver died in an accident just south of the crossover.  

Margaret Lingo lives on Woods Branch Road and says she's been waiting for closure for years.

"I've lived here for about 25 years and I've seen so many, many accidents at the intersection. It should have been done a long time ago, there's people that just don't seem to stop, they pull out front into traffic," she said.

Drivers trying to move from Route 113 onto either Kruger Road or Woods Branch Road will have to travel to the next crossover and make a U-turn, then turn right. For drivers on Kruger or Woods Branch roads trying to turn left, they will also have to use the next crossover.
