Road Closures Coming Soon in Kent County

Posted:

DOVER, Del.- The Delaware Department of Transportation is alerting drivers about road closures coming up in Kent County.

The Department will be working on the removal and replacement of crossroad pipes that will impact two roads.

Starting Monday, August 18th at 7:00 a.m until 3:00 p.m on Wednesday, August 20th, DelDOT will be working on Jarrells Road between Hopkins Cemetery Road and Little Mastens Corner Road.

Starting Monday, August 25 at 7:00 a.m until 3:00 p.m. Wednesday, August 27, DelDOT will be working on Hourglass Road between Judith Road and Slaughter Station Road.

DelDOT says local access will be maintained for residents and emergency vehicles and detour signs will be posted for drivers.

DelDOT says crossroad pipe replacements are replacements of old deteriorated pipes that carry water from one side of the road to the other. Most of the time, they are corrugated metal pipes that have rusted through and have holes in them. Once they get holes in them, DelDOT says the fill dirt that supports the road can be lost into the pipe. This can create a sink hole in the road and can actually cause the pipe to collapse if it is not replaced. Sometimes they carry streams and tax ditches, and sometimes it is just roadway drainage ditches. DelDOT replaces them with either reinforced concrete pipes or HDPE (or plastic) pipes.
