Project Description

Duffield has provided Civil and Traffic Planning and Engineering services for multiple redevelopment projects across properties situated at the intersection of DuPont Highway (US Route 13) and Christiana Road (DE Route 273).This intersection, also known as Hares Corner, is likely the busiest intersection in the State of Delaware.High traffic volumes and large population within a reasonable radius of the site has drawn high quality commercial tenants, such as Wawa, Chick-Fil-A, Starbuck, Panda Express, and Chipotle.Such operators require direct access that is safe and efficient for the patrons to navigate their site.Duffielddeveloped plans that provided direct access to the overall site, maintaining organized and efficient traffic movements and interconnections between each property that minimized circular routing to a practical extent.This allowed for the removal of a number of conflicting traffic movements by eliminating unnecessary adjacent driveways, which interconnecting the properties to function as an overall unit improved vehicular and pedestrian access, flow and safety.
