  • Zebley Road Work  As suggested in a Delaware Department of Transportation (Del DOT) study, trees and shrubbery blocking traffic visibility were removed. A stump remains to be cut.  The study determined that the amount of traffic on Zebley and side roads did not warrant the installation of all-way stop signs.
