OBX. First, welcome to Middletown. I think your major road concerns will probably rest in the proposed 301 expansion. The state has a web page dedicated to the project that you'll find at Delaware Department of Transportation - Projects.

I think your other road concern would be the folks trying to avoid downtown Middletown. You can use several roads in that area to reach Rt 71 and Rt 1 or 13 from 301 and avoid the long backups in Middletown. But also check the impact of 301 and the proposed $4 toll booth near the Levels Rd area. That will probably give you an idea what may happen to traffic in your area. It might even be included in the 301 impact study.

All the necessities of life, a smaller town feel, great public schools and very friendly neighborhoods. If you want fine dining and nightlife it ain't here. If you want a quality place to raise your family, this is as good a place as you'll find.
A Target too? Wow, i remember when there wasnt really anything in Middletown. Wouldn't this only be the third Target in DE?

Go to MapQuest: Maps, Directions, Gas Prices & Business Directory It's a great site to figure distance.

At the exhorbident (spelling is wrong, I know) price of gas these days, I would say the commute might be easy enough if it doesn't hit your wallet too hard! Lot of talk about that very subject yesterday at the barber shop! Right now, I just do the mom thing, but I can assure you I spend too much time at the gas pumps myself. GRRRR! And it is only supposed to get worse!
