It is a 'Hazard Elimination Program (HEP)' but its costly effect will be cancelled out by the extra trucks/trailers and passenger car traffic this large fueling station will bring to Angola Rd and Rt 24 intersection.
Per DelDOT's January 2018 report of Henlopen Transportation Improvement District (TID), Existing Conditions Traffic Analysis :
Angola Rd and Rt 24 intersection received "F' for AM Peak traffic and "E" for PM Peak traffic! Only 2 of 62 intersections studied fared worse: Rt. 24/Plantation Rd and Rt 24/Camp Arrowhead Rd - "F" on both AM and PM.
DelDOT tries to fix this problem with 2022 Improvement project, but the County, not only failing to recognize the severity of this particular intersection problem, but also is trying to tag along this absolutely-critical improvement to pile on more developments and bring in a heavy-traffic commercial fueling station to mess it up again.
Anyone who does not live in the area having to deal with this problem everyday should not say that the area residents are just making it up to oppose this case.
For those who have alternate routes, please just go around Angola area and do not add insult to injury!
A Conditional Use that requires a concrete barrier in the middle of our main road?
If there is an accident, which is more likely than not having this station on this site, Angola Road, the main access road for many residents, will be closed for investigation. If there is fatality, it will be closed even longer. Reporters may rush to this location as well as EMS, Fire, Police, . . .
