WILMINGTON – DNREC’s Division of Parks & Recreation’s Bellevue State Park has announced that visitors who travel to the park for the Bellevue Summer Concert Series need to be aware that an ongoing road construction project near the park will require using detour routes to get into the park via the entrance at 800 Carr Road, Wilmington, DE 19809.

The I-95 northbound and southbound ramps for Marsh Road, Exit 9, are closed for repairs until the end of August. Due to ongoing construction, motorists are prohibited from turning left onto Carr Road from Marsh Road southbound. A recently-updated GPS navigation system and the Google Maps mobile app can provide accurate turn-by-turn directions to navigate the construction detours and enter Bellevue State Park entrance at 800 Carr Road.

Visitors without GPS or Google Maps mobile app access can follow these directions to navigate safely to the Bellevue park entrance:

  • I-95 northbound: Continue northbound on I-95 past exit 9 (Marsh Road) and exit the interstate at Exit 10 (Harvey Road). Turn right onto Harvey Road, then right again onto Philadelphia Pike. Turn right onto Silverside Road and then left onto Carr Road. The park entrance will be approximately one mile ahead on the left.
  • I-95 southbound: Exit the interstate at Exit 9 (Marsh Road) and turn left onto Marsh Road southbound. Continue past Carr Road and turn left onto Washington Street Extension. Turn left onto Philadelphia Pike, left onto Bellevue Parkway, and left again onto Carr Road. The park entrance will be just ahead on the left.
  • I-495 Northbound and Southbound: Exit the interstate at Exit 4 (Edgemoor). Turn right onto Edgemoor Road, turn slightly right onto State Route 3 (Marsh Road), then turn right onto Carr Road. The park entrance will be just ahead on the right.

The summer concert series has 23 dates, scheduled every Thursday and Sunday now through Aug. 25, with the exception of Thursday, July 4. Visitors who require assistance with navigating to the park to attend concerts can call the park office at 302-761-6963.
