The water main construction on NE Front St. and Rehoboth Blvd. is nearing completion. Underground piping is complete and rehab construction is underway. We will publish a weekly update through project completion.
UPDATE JUNE 15: The contractor will work Thursday (6/16) overnight and Friday (6/17) during the day. This schedule is different than the one presented in the June 10 update.
Friday, June 10 Update: The contractor continues to perform final restoration and work has been completed up to the 4th Street/NE Front St. intersection. Next week, restoration continues with the remaining cross road patch near the Uptown Liquor Store and from 4th Street toward the Rehoboth Blvd intersection. Work will be conducted using lane shifts or lane closures and typically between 7:00 AM and 4:00 PM.
Overall project note: NE Front St. from 4th St. to Washington St. is prepped for the DelDOT Streetscape Project. This project will transform the entire look of that gateway into the City complete with brick sidewalks, crosswalks, sidewalks on both sides of the street and a protected bike lane.
