Delaware DOT to pay $1.2 million to repair Cecil County roads affected by Rt. 301 toll evaders

Cecil County Executive Alan McCarthy has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Jennifer Cohan, secretary of the Delaware Department of Transportation that will provide the county with more than $1.2 million to deal with damage to Cecil County’s roads resulting from the new Route 301 segment in Delaware.

The toll road resulted in heavy trucks evading the tolls on local roads in the county.

The executed memorandum of understanding provides for DelDOT to make a one-time payment of $1,228,018.30 to Cecil County for these repairs. While some drainage work on Wilson Street will occur this Fall/Winter, the paving work will most likely not be initiated until spring 2020.
