DelDOT Controls Firefly Traffic Situation
Delaware’s Department of Transportation Management Center staff has worked with the City of Dover Police and Delaware State Police to monitor traffic in and around Dover to ensure safe travel for motorists. Since there is a tremendous amount of festival attendees this year, Leipsic Road and Persimmon Tree Lane in the vicinity of Dover International Speedway will be closed to through traffic beginning at 10 a.m. on Thursday, June 18 until Sunday evening, June 21.
Once the festival wraps up, all roads will be reopened.
Camping/RV processing will be located at Dover International Speedway Lot 1 located south of the speedway bordered by U.S. Route 13, Leipsic Road, and Plaza Drive. Traffic from the south will enter Lot 1 from U.S. Route 13 through Jefferic Boulevard, and from the north using Leipsic Road. Campers/RVs from the north will use DE Route 1 to Exit 104 to U.S. Route 13 to a left turn at Leipsic Road. Should traffic conditions warrant, Exit 104 and Exit 98 from DE Route 1 will be closed, traffic will be directed to Exit 95 to Bay Road onto U.S. Route 13 North to Lot 1 via Jefferic Boulevard.
Traffic from the south will use northbound U.S. Route 13 to a right turn at Jefferic Boulevard into Lot 1 where separate camping/RV processing lanes will be established.
Once each vehicle is processed in Lot 1 they will exit at the east end of Lot 1 back to Leipsic Road to their assigned camping area.
