With the City of Milford as the project sponsor, DelDOT and McCormick Taylor conducted a conceptual design to investigate improvements for pedestrians and bicyclists along N.E. Front Street from N. Washington Street to NE 4th Street. In addition, the design considered improvements to create a consistent roadway section along the corridor. The project is part of DelDOT’s Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP).
The proposed improvements include new sidewalk along N.E. Front Street from N. Washington Street to Bicentennial Park. Continuing along N.E. Front Street, a shared use path (8’ to 10’ wide) will be installed on the north side and a sidewalk will be installed on the south side until the east limit of the project at N.E. 4th Street. The roadway shoulder will be eliminated and new curb will be installed. ADA facilities, including curb ramps, will be rebuilt along the corridor. Additional drainage inlets and pipes will be installed to accommodate the new typical section of the roadway.
At the intersection of N.E. Front Street and N. Washington Street, a new crosswalk will be added to the east leg of the intersection, and the brick crosswalks will be replaced with decorative thermoplastic pavement markings.
At the intersection of N.E. Front Street and N.E. 4th Street, a new crossing will be added with a striped crosswalk.
The project will also renew the existing road surface (mill and overlay) along N.E. Front Street.
