DelDOT Changes Milton Intersection

Posted: Jun 06, 2018 5:04 PM Updated:

MILTON, Del.- On Wednesday, Delaware Department of Transportation workers converted part of Sweetbriar Road to a one-way pathway.

The section of Sweetbriar road between Cave Neck and Hudson roads was changed after a public workshop on the intersection last year. DelDOT officials say a high number of crashes there prompted them to act.

"Our goal is that it will reduce driver confusion and improve visibility," says DelDOT Director of Community Relations C.R. McLeod. "We hope this will increase the amount of sight distance that drivers have."

McLeod says the area is becoming more traveled, like many east-west thoroughfares in Sussex County, so improving safety there was key. The one-way conversion included new signage, pavement markings, and tubular markers reducing the size of the roadway.

McLeod says DelDOT may add a stop light to the intersection in the future if necessary.
