Five Points Study: Phase 1


Project Overview:

The Five Points Transportation Study is examining potential improvements. The study will begin with Phase 1 – Five Points Working Group.

Project Need:

Based on transportation issues in this area, the Five Points Transportation Study will seek to reduce congestion and improve capacity on Route 1.

Project Phase 1 Goal:

Initial steps in the study will identify those east-west routes/corridors in northwestern Sussex County that are currently congested or are at risk for congestion based on anticipated growth. A number of factors will be considered, such as:

  1. Engage the community in helping with the development of conceptual alternatives to improve this intersection and the surrounding area.
  2. Identify current traffic patterns and problems in and around the Five Points intersection.
  3. Make recommendations for improvements in order to reduce congestion and improve capacity on Route 1 as well as move local traffic around the corridor without having to utilize Route 1 for every trip.

Current Phase:

The preliminary goal is to complete Phase I by the end of summer 2018.
