Blue Ball taking shape

Generally favorable weather has kept road construction in the Blue Ball area close to schedule. While thousands of vehicles veer around the site on a temporary bypass, their get only glimpses of one of the largest highway projects in the state's history. The Delaforum camera records what is happening on the site.

The future Foulk Road curves under the overpass which will carry Concord Pike en route to a future intersection with Rockland Road and the western park drive.

  A second underpass, under construction between Foulk Road and Augustine Cut-off, will enable secondary roads to link the two sides of Alapocas Run Park without having to cross the pike.    

The rebuilt Concord Pike is scheduled to reopen in late September or early October. After that, the present six-lane bypass, visible in the background of the middle photo, will be reduced to a two-lane road.
