The Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) is holding a Public Workshop to provide information and seek input on the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) project along State Route 71 between Old Porter Road and State Route 7. The project scope includes widening of the SR71/SR7 intersection to provide additional turning lanes and signalization of the SR71/Porter Road intersection. The purpose of the project is to reduce accidents and improve safety within the area.
The purpose of the workshop is to provide an opportunity for the public to review and discuss the current plans for the proposed project and provide input as it continues through the design process. Attendees will have an opportunity to review display materials and provide comments to DelDOT representatives.
This location is accessible to persons having disabilities. Any person having special needs or requiring special aid, such as an interpreter for the hearing impaired, is requested to contact DelDOT by phone or mail one week in advance.
Interested persons are invited to express their views in writing, giving reasons for support of or in opposition to, the proposed project. Comments will be received during the workshop or can be mailed to DelDOT Public Relations, P.O. Box 778, Dover, DE 19903. When applicable, we offer the opportunity to fill out a questionnaire online which will automatically get emailed to Public Relations.
