Motorists in Milford may have noticed road closures on Southeast 2nd Street as the City of Milford begins working on a project in partnership with DelDOT. The City’s portion of the project began in mid-December and will continue until mid-April while DelDOT will begin their portion of the project in late summer.

“The City’s portion of the project consists of replacement of deteriorated curb, replacement of lead goose neck/galvanized water service lines to the meter, replacement of a misaligned sanitary sewer pipe between Carlisle and Marshall, new sidewalk along Marvel Square and replacement of sidewalks necessitated by the waterline or sewer line work,” Mark Whitfield, Acting City Manager, said. “The work is being done in anticipation of a DelDOT project later this year that will include new ADA ramps and repaving the entire street.”

Whitfield explained that this project benefits the citizens of Milford by removing any potential lead hazards. The project will also replace outdated galvanized water lines, improving the quality of drinking water in the area.

“The replacement of the section of sewer line will also reduce the potential of sewage backups in the area, as well as reduce the need of routine maintenance on the line,” Whitfield said. “The replacement of the section of sewer line will also reduce the potential of sewage backups in the area, as well as reduce the need of routine maintenance on the line. The ADA ramps will provide better mobility for those who are handicapped and the new sidewalk will provide better access to the park as well as downtown. New curbs, where needed, will improve property value as well as aid in storm water flow.”

Funding for the City’s part of the project came from water, sanitary and sewer reserves as well as from the City’s general fund.

“This summer or fall, DelDOT will be starting a Transportation Alternatives Project (TAP) for Northeast Front Street from Washington to Rehoboth Boulevard,” Whitfield said. “This project will include sidewalks, a bike path, curbing and lighting. In anticipation of that project, the City will be replacing an outdated water line and performing some minor sanitary sewer line repairs. We also have some paving projects that include Marshall Street, McColley Street, Roosa Road, Plum Street, Southeast 5th Street, Fisher Avenue and two sections of Masten’s Circle.”

Whitfield stated that the City continues to work on the design for a raised crosswalk on Walnut Street at the bridge over the Mispillion River and once that design is completed, the City will be seeking funds to complete the project. In addition, Whitfield explained that sidewalk repair is ongoing and another section of the City will be inspected this spring with notices sent out in June.
