October Picked for Iron Branch Bridge Work, Two-week Lane Closure Anticipated

October is Delaware Department of Transportation’s choice for the two-week closure of southbound lanes of US 113 in Millsboro for restoration/rehabilitation of the Iron Branch Bridge, a portion of which is more than a century old. DelDOT representatives updated Millsboro council and town leaders at council’s July 1 meeting on the accelerated bridge project. Mumford & Miller, a Middletown-based construction firm that deals in bridge work, is the contractor for the approximate $1.2 million project.
