TRAFFIC ALERT - Intersection Safety Project Will Begin at Route 52/Kennett Pike & Route 82/Campbell Road/Kirk Road
Beginning Friday, March 8
Greenville -- The Department of Transportation (DelDOT) today announced that contractor Zack Excavating, Inc., will begin a major intersection safety improvement project on Route 52/Kennett Pike and Route 82/Campbell Road/Kirk Road in Greenville beginning Friday, March 8. At a later date, lane restrictions will be announced. The $1.5 million project is anticipated to be completed by mid-November, pending weather.
The intersection was identified under the Hazard Elimination Program (HEP). HEP is aimed at intersections in the state highway system that has experienced a high frequency of crashes.
This project will provide a separate left and shared right/through lane on both the northbound and southbound approaches to the intersection. The shoulders will be reconstructed on the approaches to the intersection. There will also be a signal providing motorists a left turn at the intersection. Campbell Road will have an improved right turn lane along with some drainage improvements in this area. This project supports multi-modal transportation with bike lanes, bus stops and crosswalks for pedestrians. These enhancements will improve the safety of pedestrians and motorists within this area.
Motorists should drive with caution, slow down in work zones, and never enter a roadway that has been blocked with barriers or cones.
