Bad weather has delayed the widening of Route 26.

The project was to be completed by June 24th of next year.

Yesterday Delaware Department of Transportation advisory group awarded an additional 43 days pushing the completion date back to September 7th of next year.

WBOC reports that Project Manager Mike Delp from the construction firm said that the extensions were to be expected since none had been included in the contract.
