Freeman Highway to be Repaved prior to Memorial Day Weekend

Construction Work to take place weeknights starting March 7, 2022

LEWES, Del. – Today, Delaware River and Bay Authority (DRBA) officials announced that its contractor, Allan Myers of Malvern, PA, will begin milling and paving work to rehabilitate Freeman Highway, the main access route to the Cape May – Lewes Ferry.  The construction activity is tentatively scheduled to start on March 7, 2022. 

Construction activity will take place weeknights from 6:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.  During the day, traffic will not be impacted as one lane in each direction will remain open.  Work is expected to be completed by May 20, 2022.  The construction schedule may vary due to inclement weather.

During this scheduled work, motorists may encounter delays on Freeman Highway during these overnight hours.  Travelers are urged to be careful and stay alert in and around construction zones, obey posted speed limits, and plan to take a few extra minutes during rush hour periods.
