The Delaware Department of Transportation announced that due to high water levels of Nonesuch Creek, DelDOT has closed Airport Road, between Interstate 95 Exit 5A and McArthur Drive, New Castle, for the safety of the public.

DelDOT will be placing concrete barrier walls to prohibit motorists from using the roadway. The department will be making repairs to the dykes of the tributaries to Nonesuch Creek and repairs to the tide gates of the bridge.

Traffic will be detoured from Airport Road to state Route 141 to Commons Boulevard to Airport Road and vice versa. Detour signage will be posted.
