UPDATED JANUARY 4, 2018:

As a result of the inclement weather, the planned closure of US 13 beginning Friday, January 5, 2018, is canceled.


The Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) announces that US 13 northbound under the SR 141/Basin Road Bridge will be closed to through traffic beginning at 8 PM on Friday, January 5. Local businesses will still be accessible via US 13 north and south.

US 13 southbound will remain open until approximately 6 AM on Saturday, January 6. At all times, the right lane on both US 13 northbound and southbound will remain open for the duration of the closure for access to local businesses. This work is anticipated to be completed by 5 AM on Monday, January 8. During this weekend closure, motorists are advised to seek alternate routes.

Implementing this weekend closure will save significant time in the placement of the new deck panels as the contractor works toward the goal of reopening the bridge to traffic in late January.

Variable message boards will be in place to notify motorists of the upcoming closure with detour routes.

Local businesses, such as Airbase Carpet Mart and Arner’s Restaurant, will be OPEN and accessible to customers during the closure.

Detour Routes:
