Upcoming repair work Nov. 9–19 to affect use of Junction & Breakwater Trail

Map of affected areaLEWES – Repairs Nov. 9 – 19, to the railroad crossing on Gills Neck Road in Lewes will affect how users of the Junction & Breakwater Trail gain access to Lewes. The work will require closure of a portion of Gills Neck Road, meaning that trail users who reach the trail’s easternmost end near the Lewes and Rehoboth Canal will not be able bike or walk into Lewes.

Trail users whose destination is Lewes – or who are coming from Lewes – are advised to use the path along Gills Neck Road between Cape Henlopen High School and the Senators residential development.

Signs will be posted along the trail to notify users of the road closure impacts. The Delaware Department of Transportation will also place signs on area roads to notify the public of vehicle travel pattern changes as a result of the closure.
