The Puncheon Run Connector is an unnumbered four-lane freeway in Dover, Delaware. It is named after Puncheon Run, a stream it follows. It provides a connection between U.S. Route 13 and the northbound direction of the Delaware Route 1 toll road, with an intermediate interchange at Bay Road. The road is part of the National Highway System and serves as part of a north-south route for traffic crossing the Delmarva Peninsula. Planning for the Puncheon Run Connector began in the 1980s and originally included a freeway upgrade for US 13 south to Woodside. The connector was scaled back to its current routing in 1992. The freeway was built between 1998 and 2000 at a cost of $25 million.
