The closing of Harmony Road has been pushed back again until the end of July, the Delaware Department of Transportation announced.
The bridgework has been changed from mid-July to July 29, 2019 until mid-September 2019, depending on the weather.
The project was originally delayed, due to fears of gridlock with the simultaneous closings of Harmony and Red Mill roads. Both are key connectors to employment sites in the Ogletown area that include Christiana Hospital and JPMorgan Chase.
