Bridge Closure on Rt 36 to Vehicle Traffic – Indefinite Period of Time
Closure of Cedar Creek Drawbridge
JULY 15, 2022 -- Officials with the Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) said today that the Cedar Creek Drawbridge (on SR36 east of Milford) will be closed to vehicle traffic for an indefinite period of time due to a mechanical failure.
Workers were able to manually raise the bridge to allow marine traffic on Cedar Creek to freely move under the span. However, with the bridge in the open position, motorists trying to access the area via Cedar Beach Road (SR36) will have to use a detour.
DelDOT engineers have not yet determined the extent of the problem and are currently unable to provide an estimated repair time.
Vehicle Traffic Detours
• SR1 Southbound: Continue along SR 1 SB and make a left onto Slaughter Beach Road then continue Down Slaughter Beach Road and take access to Bay Road north or south.
• SR1 Northbound: SR 1 NB make an early right onto Slaughter Beach Road then access onto Bay Road north or south.
Message boards have been placed at four locations leading into the area to alert motorists of the situation.
