Route 1 & Route 8 Partial Interchange Opens Today

Dover -- The Delaware Department of Transportation announces that David A. Bramble, Inc. has completed work on the Route 1 & Route 8 partial interchange in Dover. The interchange will open to all motorists for use this afternoon, Thursday, September 5 at approximately 3:00 p.m.

The newly construction partial interchange allows for a link from Route 1 to Route 8 just east of Route 13. This will provide easier access to downtown Dover's central business district. The interchange consists of an exit ramp from southbound Route 1 to westbound Route 8 and an entrance ramp from eastbound Route 8 onto northbound Route 1. Because the location of the interchange is south of the Dover Toll Plaza, there will not be any toll charges associated with its access to Route 1.
