Standards and Regulations for Subdivision Streets and State Highway Access

Background

The Delaware Department of Transportation through its Planning Division has developed revised regulations for access to State-maintained roads and for planning, design, construction, and acceptance for maintenance of subdivision streets. These regulations, Standards and Regulations for Subdivision Streets and State Highway Access, revise, update, and consolidate the Rules and Regulations for Subdivision Streets, enacted in December 1981, and the Standards and Regulations for Access to State Highways, enacted in August 1983. These regulations define the requirements which apply to:

• New subdivisions and land development

• Changed or expanded subdivisions and land development

• Any new access on to a State-maintained road

• Modifications to an existing access

• Assessment of the impacts of traffic

• Off-site improvements

A public hearing will be held on July 26, 2007 at the DelDOT Administration Building in the Farmington/Felton Room from 4:00 pm until 7:00 pm.

The Department will take comments on the Regulations from July 1, 2007 through August 6, 2007.
