Investing in Delaware's Infrastructure

On Nov. 9, DelDOT broke ground on a $40-million interchange project on Del. 1 in Little Heaven, in central Kent County.

When a crime is committed in our community that results in a needless death, we think about our safety and that of our children, but the pain is always deepest for the family and loved ones closest to the victim. Sometimes, when the case for justice goes cold, their suffering can last for years or decades.

Earlier this year, I was proud to join my fellow Democrats in the General Assembly in leading the effort to boost investment in Delaware’s roads, bridges and highways. Soon, we will start seeing the real results of this action up and down the state, on major roads as well as local streets. Over the coming months and years, we can look forward to a safer transportation network, more good-paying, reliable middle-class jobs and the economic growth that’s been proven to accompany public investments in infrastructure.
