Repairs to a bridge on Yorklyn Road will result in the street’s closure this week until Friday, according to DelDOT.
Signs alerting drivers to the closure appeared last week. DelDOT said a contractor is resurfacing the bridge deck and the work should be completed by the end of the week. A bike and pedestrian trail will also be closed during the construction.
Drivers that normally take Yorklyn Road from Hockessin/Lancaster Pike will be detoured left onto Old Wilmington Road, then right onto Meeting House Road, then right on Benge Road, following Benge Road until it dead-ends at Creek Road and finally making a right onto Creek Road which brings you to the other side of the bridge closure.
For those coming from the north, the detour is right on Creek Road, Left onto Benge Road, left onto Meeting House Hill Road, left onto Old Wilmington Road, and then right onto Yorklyn Road.
At that same intersection, near the new pedestrian bridge, the Auburn Valley State Park is doing work on a wetland installation. DNREC says there has been a lot of work going on in Yorklyn to create a series of wetlands to mitigate heavy rains.
