The town of Lewes may still be open for business but it’s going to be more difficult to get around.

WBOC reports there are three construction projects now underway.

The Delaware resort is finishing up a sewer line and putting in a new water line on Savannah Road.

In addition, it is renovating the 1812 parking lot on Front Street.

The work is expected to wrap up by May 1st.

But Board of Public Works Director Darrin Gordon told the television station that there are incentives for a completion date of April 1st.

Resort officials say it was necessary to upgrade the water system as well as repaving the roadways.

Expect to see detour signs when trying to get around the town.
