Route 13 Closure for Sewer Repair near Dover


Expect some closures along Route 13 from Delaware Technical Community College to south of the Dover International Speedway.

The closures will be due to the repair of around 2 miles of concrete piping underneath the highway.

WBOC reports that a section of pipe has been closed in recent years because of a crack officials fear would lead to sewage seeping into the ground or storm water.

Work is expected to take place next month and run more than $8 million.

Funds from the USDA are expected to help pay defray the costs of the project.
