    Frankford – The Department of Transportation (DelDOT) announced that a paving contract has been awarded which will allow for several Sussex County surface-treated roads, commonly known as “tar and chip”, to be repaved. This treatment method, though effective in sealing against cracks, wear, and weather-related damage, leaves behind loose gravel which can be a hazard for bicyclists in the shorter term.

    -Church Street from Beaver Dam Road to Lewes/Georgetown Highway
    -Wil King Road from Conleys Chapel Road to Kendale Road
