The critical Greenville artery of Centerville Road that stretches from Lancaster Pike to Rte. 82/Campbell Road will soon close for a much-needed overhaul. Sources report that the temporary closing could begin as early as the end of October, with the shut down lasting several months. The duration of the road closure will likely depend on this winter’s weather conditions.
The narrow, curvy country lane has suffered significant damage over the last several winters, with short-term patching jobs keeping the road passable. Extensive and deepening potholes have made the thoroughfare quite treacherous in several places, and local residents have expressed concerns about increasing accidents.
Although a scenic, heavily-tree-lined byway that hugs the Hoopes Reservoir, the temporary closure of Centreville Road will impact hundreds of drivers who use the road daily in both directions, particularly those coming south to Lancaster Pike and Barley Mill Road.
DelDOT is expected to release complete details on the roadwork soon.
