DE 9(N-S)/DE 273(E-W) Duplex


9 273

Delaware Routes 9 and 273 join unnecessarily for 0.85 miles through New Castle in New Castle County.


Alex Nitzman 4/03/04

Southbound on DE 141/Basin Road at the beginning of the DE 9/DE 273 and Truck DE 9/DE 273 duplexes and the southern end of DE 141. DE 9 skirts the perimeter of New Castle, taking DE 273 with it to the left.

 


Alex Nitzman 6/00

A left turn begins the DE 9/DE 273 duplex, which then ends on the east side of town where DE 9/DE 273/Ferry Cut Off Street meets DE 9/East 6th Street. Here DE 273 ends, and DE 9 continues northbound to the left on Sixth Street. DE 9 used to traverse New Castle to the right on Sixth Street but was relocated to bypass the downtown area by following DE 273, which was never truncated.

 


Alex Nitzman 4/10/04

Southbound on DE 9/Sixth Street where DE 9 veers from its old routing (straight ahead) to join the beginning of DE 273 (to the right).

 


Alex Nitzman 4/10/04

Westbound on DE 9/DE 273 at the western split. DE 9 turns left onto Washington Avenue, while DE 273 continues straight ahead on Truck DE 9/DE 273 and DE 141 begins to the right.

The western split as seen from Truck DE 9 north/DE 273 east. The DE 9/DE 273 duplex begins straight ahead.
