Route 1 stretch in Sussex still closed

Route 1 from Dewey Beach to Bethany Beach is still closed as DelDOT crews continue to clear sand from the roadway, and also assess the condition of the road surface.

One lane is open for use by emergency vehicles only.

Elsewhere Prime Hook Road remains closed and won't open until the water recedes and inspectors can assess the condition of the road.

The Blades draw bridge is open to vehicle traffic, but will be several days before the bridge can be raised and lowered for water traffic.

DelDOT says they will release a detailed list of road and bridge closures later on today.
