Delaware Department of Transportation — SR1, South Frederica Grade Separated Intersection

The Delaware Department of Transportation’s (DelDOT’s) $18.8 million South Frederica Grade Separated Intersection helps connect the community to local and rural roads, closing multiple unsafe grade crossings which separated local traffic from the heavier traffic on SR-1. First initiated in 2008 as part of the Corridor Capacity Preservation Program and completed in 2018, it also provides access roads and a new bridge for both vehicles and bicyclists. DelDOT also synched this project with DE Turf, a local sports complex that runs along SR-1, so both could be built and simultaneously and open on time. This project continues to impact the local economy and provide the community with even more live, work, and play opportunities – helping encourage the addition of a new high-rise hotel, a “park and ride” service, and the expansion of many local restaurants and local facilities. Upon completion, the SR1 South Frederica Grade Separated Intersection project enhanced safety, mobility, and access for all travelers across the state.
