Collapsed Pipe Closes Road in Seaford

Posted:

SEAFORD, Del. - A broken crossroad pipe has caused the north portion of Park Avenue by the Seaford Industrial Park to be closed.

The 40-foot-long, 4-foot-wide pipe collapsed.  According to Assistant City Manager Charles Anderson, it could take four to five weeks to get all the materials and eventually replace the pipe.

For now, drivers can only use Industrial Park Boulevard to get into the Seaford Industrial Park.

The closure is right next to Orient Corporation of America, and employees like Jameson Brinck are already annoyed.

"It affects everybody at the company, they're all pretty annoyed at this point," he said. "I have caught myself where I've been in the routine of taking that same route for days I've come that way and had to turn back around which actually does tack on another 10 to 15 minutes so I have been late because of that."

Scott Howard is a truck driver who often makes stops in the Seaford Industrial park, and he said although he uses Park Avenue to go in and out, it isn't too big of a concern.

"Doesn't matter if I go that way or come back this way," he explained. "It's all the same."
