DelDOT Alert: Naamans Road

Safe Routes to School Program Will Require Lane Closures on Naamans Road


The Delaware Department of Transportation’s (DelDOT) contractor, GrassBusters Landscaping Company, will begin work on Friday, April 1st, at the intersection of Naamans Road and Ballymeade Drive; plus the entrance to Lancashire Elementary School. This project consists of placing curb ramps on both sides of the intersection and a sidewalk on school property. Two additional locations at Hanby and Harlan Elementary Schools will follow with no traffic restrictions.


Daytime intermittent shoulder closures will occur from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. Intermittent lane closures will be from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m., Monday through Friday, pending weather. The work is anticipated to be complete by mid-May.


The change is due to the “Safe Routes to School” program which makes it safe, convenient and fun for children to walk or bicycle to school. Elementary and middle schools can receive funding through Delaware Safe Routes to School Program. For further information, please contact Sarah Coakley, Program Manager at (302) 760-2236.
