DOVER, Del.- The opening of the 2014 Firefly Music Festival at Dover Downs is bringing with it plenty of traffic Thursday morning and motorists are experiencing delays on DE 1 and US 13 in the Dover area.

The Delaware Department of Transportation is reminding local residents and motorists that heavy traffic volume will continue to be encountered throughout the weekend, and recommends extra time be taken to get to your destination or take alternate routes. Heavy traffic may cause sudden and unexpected back-ups, so officials advise drivers to slow down and pay attention.

Due to the number of patrons attending the festival, Leipsic Road and Persimmon Tree Road in the vicinity of Dover International Speedway will be closed to through traffic beginning at 10 a.m. on Thursday, June 19 until Sunday evening, June 22. At the conclusion of the festival, all roads will be reopened.
