The Streetscape Project extends for over a half mile through the Town’s busiest corridor and will take several months to complete. The contractor will be working on different portions of the project at different times.
In general, truck traffic will be rerouted around the work zone with exception of local deliveries, which will still be accommodated. In general, east/west truck traffic along Delaware Avenue will be routed to Elsmere Avenue, the Delmar Bypass and Elm Avenue throughout the duration of the construction project.
The Town has worked with the contractor to develop two (2) different options for detour routes. The location and type of the work will determine which detour route will be in effect. Weekly meetings between Town staff and the Contractor will include a determination of which detour route (if any) will be in effect for the upcoming week.
A weekly update notification will then be sent out using the Town’s Notify Me® list serve to inform the public, school district, emergency responders and other agencies of upcoming traffic pattern changes. The Notify Me® system is a free service to all and is the quickest way to keep everyone informed.
Please note that access to homes and businesses will be provided by one-way traffic during construction hours. Normal, two-direction traffic will be restored daily no later than 5:00 p.m. with either detour route option.
