Delaware Ave Hamlet Streetscape Enhancement

Construction Phase

Safety First

Construction in this highly traveled corridor is challenging. Traffic patterns and detour routes may change as the construction progresses. First and foremost is maintaining a safe environment for both the public and the construction crews. In addition to safety, allowing businesses and commuters to operate with minimal disruption is a high priority.

Construction is expected to begin in early June with the majority of construction completed in 2017. There may be some restoration work, such as landscaping, that extends into spring 2018.

Our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s) and Traffic Detour Plans have been developed to address many of the concerns by residents and businesses regarding the construction phase. Our FAQ’s will be updated periodically to reflect common questions as they are received.

In short, the overall traffic plan seeks to:

  • Keep at least one lane of travel in one direction open along Delaware Avenue during the work day, with both lanes restored by evening;
  • Maintain access to driveways for homes and businesses at all times; and
  • Divert pass-through truck traffic away from the work zone.

Please take a look at the FAQs and Detour Plans and give yourself a few extra minutes if you have to travel through the work zone.
