    Delaware transportation officials are holding a public workshop on a plan to widen Route 1 from north of Route 273 to the Roth Bridge over the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal.

    Tuesday evening's workshop at Wilbur Elementary School in Bear involves the presentation of a noise study of the road project.

    The project calls for adding a travel lane in each direction to Delaware's major north-south artery, widening existing bridges to accommodate the new travel lanes, and reconfiguring supporting interchanges.
