Five Points intersection now open


LEWES — The Delaware Department of Transportation announced May 16 that the Route 9 intersection at Plantation Road/Beaver Dam Road is now open.

The intersection includes a new access point from Route 1 southbound, allowing traffic movements to Route 9 west and across Route 9 to reach Plantation Road/Beaver Dam Road through the new roundabout.

This project was developed based on 78 recommendations of the Five Points Working Group; 39 of the recommendations are in progress or planning, and 32 have been completed to date. A public open house will be held June 11, from 4-6 p.m., in the Cape Henlopen High School Library.
