Route 1 Lane Closures in Milford Due to Emergency Repairs

Posted: Updated:

MILFORD, Del.- The Delaware Department of Transportation is warning drivers of lane closures on southbound Route 1 in Milford.

From 6 p.m. Thursday until 9 a.m. Friday, DelDOT will be doing emergency road repairs due to heat-related heaving of the road.

DelDOT will be removing a 10-foot section of the road and installing a temporary patch to resolve the issue until a permanent repair is scheduled at a later date.

The location of the clsoure is just south of the new Northeast Front Street interchange in Milford, near mile marker 42. 

According to DelDOT, this type of issue can happen on any road surface during extreme temperatures. As temperature and humidity increase, the road can run out of room to expand, and buckle, creating a safety hazard.
