DelDOT plans to open entrance ramps to Kennett Pike and all lanes of traffic on 141 by Nov. 15th.

Update on the road construction on Route 141. The heavily-traveled interstate is set to open to all directions of traffic on November 15th.  DelDOT officials have confirmed that Barley Mill Road will also open on that date. 

This will conclude more than one and a half years of work on the heavily-trafficked thoroughfare, a project first reported on by TSD in March of 2017. 

141 at Route 100, where southbound traffic has been funneled into one lane for over a year.

Over this time, significant, mind and spirit-altering backups have been common along both 141 and surrounding arteries, with creative traffic-avoiding drivers seeking back road alternatives including country lanes such as Centerville and Montchanin Roads that routinely reached their capacity.

The $17 million project was undertaken to replace the existing concrete roadway on a 1.4-mile section of Route 141 and on the Route52/Kennett Pike interchange ramps, as well as replace concrete curbing, drainage, and guardrails. Among other impacts, the work required the closing of Barley Mill Road at 141 for an extended period.

Let us all hope it is another generation before additional road work is required.
