Some work on Seaford intersections won't be completed until next spring

By Lynn R. Parks

DelDOT spokesman Sandy Roumillat says that the work on U.S. 13 in Seaford that was started this summer is substantially complete except at two locations: the intersections of 13 and Stein Highway and 13 and Middleford Road.

At the Stein Highway intersection, the contractor is performing minor corrective work that will be complete by the end of the year.

Final road stripes have to be put down and workers need to install new light signals.

At Middleford Road, work continues on new storm drains on the east and west sides of the highway and on road widening.

That work is expected to be complete by mid-January, depending on the weather.

Roumillat said that the Middleford Road part of the project was delayed by utility relocations that needed to be done before construction could begin. Work on this intersection will be completed in the spring, when a final coat of asphalt can be put down.

At the O'Neals Road intersection, workers still need to put down final stripes, a project that requires an air temperature of at least 55 degrees.

At Tharp Road, all of the travel lanes are open. The contractor has a list of small items that will be done after the first of the year.

Work at the Concord Road intersection is also nearly complete. All that remains is the installation of new traffic lights.
