SR 1 Closed Between Bethany Beach and Dewey Beach - WBOC-TV 16, Delmarvas News Leader, FOX 21 -

Updated: SR 1 Reopened Between Bethany Beach and Dewey Beach

Posted: 09/19/2017 09:21:00 -04:00 Updated:

INDIAN RIVER INLET, Del.- The Delaware Department of Transportation has reopened both the northbound and southbound lanes of SR 1 - including the Indian River Inlet Bridge - between Dewey Beach and Bethany Beach.

That section of the highway had been temporarily closed for more than two hours Tuesday morning following a breach in the dunes near Conquest Road.

The closure had been in place to allow the water to recede to a safe travel level, according to DelDOT.

Drivers are encouraged to call the following numbers to report any travel or traffic related issues:  Dial #77 from any cellphone in Delaware; (302) 659-4600 or 1-800-324-8379. Dial 911 for emergencies. 

The closure came as Hurricane Jose churned up dangerous surf and rip currents along the U.S. East Coast as it moved north over the Atlantic Ocean.

The National Weather Service posted coastal flood warnings for the central and southern Delaware, and a coastal flood advisory for other areas in the mid-Atlantic, including Worcester and St. Mary's counties in southern Maryland.
