US 301/DE 71/DE 896 Multiplexes

 

US 301(N-S)/DE 896(N-S) Duplex

301 896

Alex Nitzman 4/17/04

US 301's commonly mis-signed northern terminus was finally explicitly posted in 2004. US 301 begins along DE 896 at the intersection with US 40.

 


Alex Nitzman 4/17/04

US 301 used to follow two corridors in northern Delaware. Here on US 301/DE 896 north, US 301 once turned to follow US 40 east.

 


Alex Nitzman 4/17/04

The overhead signs at the same location show the old extension along US 40. Today, US 301 ends here where US 301/DE 896 meets US 40. DE 896 continues northward to Newark and more multiplexes.

A closer view of the intersection of US 301/DE 896 and US 40. US 40 runs left-right, and DE 896 north continues straight ahead. US 301 ends at this intersection.

 


Douglas Kerr 3/24/01

Eastbound on US 40 at the US 301/DE 896 Glasgow bypass, east of town in 2001. Douglas Kerr writes: This is actually the northern terminus of US 301, although signs still direct drivers to the original US 13/301 duplex to the east (US 301 was relocated in the early 1990s). Also notice the void between East US 40 and TO North US 301. Signs originally directed traffic to northbound I-95 via US 40, and southbound I-95 via DE 896 (south has been greened out on the DE 896 panel).

 


David Greenberger 5/23/02

Southbound on I-95 at the interchange with DE 896. US 301 never reached as far north as here, and so the middle sign should read DE 896 South TO US 301
