Hockessin -- The Department of Transportation is holding a Public Information Meeting to present facts and solicit public comment regarding safety improvements on Route 41/Lancaster Pike. The workshop will be on Monday November 10th, between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. in the Downstairs Conference Room of the Hockessin Fire Department, at the intersection of Route 41 and Yorklyn Road, in Hockessin.

This project will consist of safety improvements along the Route 41 corridor in the Hockessin area. The project limits are 1,000 feet north of Mitchell Road to the Pennsylvania State Line.
