Dover Toll Facility

Owner: Delaware Department of Transportation
Location: Kent County, Del.

The Delaware Department of Transportation wanted a distinctive style to the first of three planned toll administration facilities on its new north-south highway, State Route 1. Additional criteria included the ability for supervisory personnel to have an unobstructive view “up and down” the highway and the desire to relate to the historic architecture of the Dover area. The solution incorporates a semicircular Toll Sergeant’s Office with 180 degree visibility on the highway side of the building and the use of materials and forms reminiscent of the local historic buildings but in a contemporary composition.

Project Features:

  • 8,000-square-foot toll administration facility
  • 400-foot tunnel to a 12-lane barrier toll plaza
  • Handmade brick exterior with cast stone accents and metal standing seam roof
  • Integral security features including bullet resistant glazing, intrusion detection, video surveillance, and access control
  • 70-square-foot Class “1” bank vault
