Project Limits

Park Avenue, also known as US Route 9 Truck Bypass, is a designated truck route for tractor trailers moving through the Georgetown area. DelDOT's Capital Transportation Plan for FY 2017-2023 recommends that the roads used for the truck bypass be upgraded with appropriate turn lanes, shoulders, and intersection improvements.
