The topic of traffic on Rt 1 comes up on this site. So I decided to look at the DelDot website. It is 2:45 pm on the Saturday of 4th of July weekend. This is the backup, to give readers an idea of what happens.
From 5 Points, which is the intersection to go to Lewes, southbound on Rt 1 to Rt 24
2.54 miles with a normal drive time of 3 minutes. It is now taking 19 minutes.
On Rt 1 southbound, from Rt 24 to Rt 1A, the turn off into Rehoboth
2.22 miles with a normal drive time of 3 minutes. It is now taking 14 minutes.Edited: 03 July 2016, 02:56
