(Nov. 14, 2014) Separate from the ongoing repaving efforts along the same stretch of road, Delmarva Power has asked the State Highway Administration to close the stretch of Route 113 northbound and southbound, Nov. 14-16, from midnight to 4 a.m. between routes 50 and 90.
According to SHA’s David Buck, the northbound detour will take drivers onto 346 (Old Ocean City Road) back to 50 and finally returning to 113 north of the work. Southbound drivers will be funneled onto 818 (Main Street) back to 50 and again onto 113.
“It’s a pretty easy detour,” Buck said.
State police will be at both locations to direct drivers.
Those hours have the highest incidence of impaired driving, Buck said, which is one of the reasons for the police presence.
