Five Points Working Group Takes Small Steps Forward With Projects

Posted: Updated:

LEWES, Del.-The Five Points Working Group met at Cape Henlopen High School in Lewes Monday night to discuss DelDOT's updates on its projects for Sussex County. 

The Five Points Working Group navigated 78 recommendations and since the last meeting in April, 32 recommendations were marked as complete or in progress. 

"We are tackling the smaller things first, trying to get some things done. but that doesn't mean we're not working on the bigger picture items," said Josh Thomas with DelDOT. 

Barbara Hutson lives in Lewes and it was her first time attending a Five Points Working Group Meeting. She thinks DelDOT is putting in a good effort given the amount of research each project requires. 

"When the engineer explained the steps that it's needed to take to come to the conclusion of the project, I can see that it's a lot of work," said Hutson. "And it takes time, you know Rome wasn't built in a day and neither was Lewes done in a day."

But others wish the changes were more immediate. Five Points Working Group member Dennis Forney was concerned with the timing of the projects. 

"We'll maybe there are ways we can say that maybe doing something that takes eight weeks will take four weeks because we know we already have a problem now," said Forney. "And it's only getting worse the longer we take to address it."

More detailed updated will come through emails from the Five Points Working Group over the next two months. DelDOT will continue collecting data on their long term projects like the Five Points intersection.
