Park Road to reopen near UD’s Lewes campus
LEWES (Aug. 28, 2014) – The Division of Parks and Recreation has announced that Park Road in Lewes will be opened Saturday morning, Aug. 30, for through traffic. The road just underwent a major resurfacing and realignment, and had a new shared-use pedestrian/bicycle path added. Some minor clean-up projects remain but they can be completed with closures or temporary closures of a lane occurring only periodically.
Park Road connects New Road and Pilottown Road, and is commonly used as an alternative route to the University of Delaware’s College of Earth, Ocean and Environment/Hugh R. Sharp Campus, the Lewes Public Boat Ramp, U.S. Coast Guard Station and Lewes Dairy, as well as other businesses and residences along Pilottown Road.
