The summer is gone and now it’s time to begin work on the Delaware Route 1 overpass in Kent County.

Officials held meeting with the public this week to discuss the impact of the $40 million project located between Magnolia and Frederica.

WBOC reports that the work which begins in October will more than likely produce backups Friday through Sunday.

The hope of transportation officials is that it will eliminate two traffic signals that include one at Bowers Beach Road.

DelDot officials are also trying to keep lane closures down to a minimum while the work is being done.
