MILLSBORO, Del. (AP) Delaware Department of Transportation engineers have unveiled an $839-million proposal to build a bypass near U.S. 113 to help ease heavy summer traffic congestion on the popular route to the Eastern shore beaches.

The News Journal of Wilmington reported May 27 that engineers have proposed building a 12.7-mi. (20 km) bypass route that would help traffic-weary residents of Millsboro, Dagsboro and Frankford.

U.S. 113 is a commuter corridor to Georgetown and Dover from smaller towns southward, in addition to a heavily trafficked beach route.

Engineers said congestion is projected to get worse: by 2030, traffic along the north-south corridor between Millsboro and the state line at Selbyville could increase up to 53 percent — or an extra 20,000 cars daily.
