Delaware conducting motorist survey on US 301

    Transportation officials are inviting motorists to speak up about their travel habits in order to help Delaware Department of Transportation planners.

    That’s right, folks, feedback that doesn’t have to come in the form of road rage.

    DelDOT officials are conducting a survey of motorists on U.S. 301 at the Maryland/Delaware border near Middletown to gain information about travel patterns of vehicles entering Delaware.

    Motorists traveling northbound on U.S. 301 on Tuesday will be diverted into a weigh and inspection station just north of the state line for brief, voluntary interviews. Signs and cones will direct motorists to the interview location, and Delaware State Police will help direct traffic to minimize traffic delays.

    Officials say motorists can expect delays of less than five minutes.
