Site work is underway on Covered Bridge Trails off Tulip Drive near Lewes. Residents of the community will use the county's one and only covered bridge for access.
Located behind Dutch Acres and St. Jude the Apostle Church along Route 1, the 55-plus community will contain 43 single-family homes and a mix of 91 duplexes and townhomes. The total number of units was reduced by Sussex County Council from 147 to 134 as a condition of approval.
At its Dec. 15, 2016 meeting, council voted for an ordinance to grant rezoning from AR-1 to MR and a conditional use for multifamily housing to Ocean Atlantic Communities LLC, developers of the project.
Access to the community would be off Route 1 via Tulip Drive, an entrance shared by the church and the Dutch Acres and Villas of Taramino communities. The bridge over wetlands at the entrance will be 180 feet long.
