The water main construction on NE Front St. and Rehoboth Blvd. is nearing completion. Both underground piping and rehab construction are complete. We will publish a weekly update through project completion.
Friday, June 24 Update: The main restoration has been completed. Beginning today and continuing into next week the contractor will finish restoring the shoulder of Rehoboth Blvd from its intersection with NE Front Street to the drawbridge. Additional work will include installing concrete collars on the water valves and removing and replacing four sewer manhole frames and covers. Work will be completed during the day time using shoulder closures, lane shifts or lane closures as needed.
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.
