New Traffic Signal On Savannah Road in Lewes

by Dave on August 17, 2010

The Department of Transportation (DelDOT) announces that the new traffic signal on Savannah Road at the back entrance to Cape Henlopen High School (Dover Street) will be put into initial operation in late August and will become fully operational before school begins.

The purpose of the signal is to control traffic on Savannah Road and traffic entering/exiting the school during peak times. Once put into service the signal will operate in a flash mode – yellow for Savannah Road motorists and red for those exiting the school – for a minimum of 72 hours. The signal will then be placed into full stop- and-go operation (green/yellow/red). The signal will operate on a vehicle detection system (trip). If traffic is not waiting to enter/exit the school, the signal will stay green for eastbound and westbound Savannah Road traffic.

The signal was designed and constructed via a mutual agreement between the Cape Henlopen School District and DelDOT.

Message boards will be placed in the area to alert motorists of the new signal approximately one week before the signal is turned on. In addition, “NEW” signs will be placed atop “SIGNAL AHEAD” signs for a period of 2-3 months to alert motorists.
