The City of Milford’s contractor, Diamond Materials, of Newport, DE, will complete phase A-2 of the Airport Road Rehabilitation Project, between Jehovah Witness Kingdom Hall and Bowman Road on Monday, November 6, 2017, at which time it will reopen to traffic. Airport Road from Canterbury Road (DE 15) to Delaware Veterans Blvd will be closed to traffic on November 6, 2017 with a detour using Bowman Road and DuPont Blvd (US 113) through November 17, 2017. Rehabilitation of this section includes additional roadway subbase pavement widening and drainage improvements.
Additionally, beginning November 6, the existing pavement surface will be milled and a final top coat of asphalt will be laid over the entire roadway. During the milling and overlay process, one lane traffic will be maintained using flaggers. The milling and overlay will also include NE Tenth Street between DuPont Blvd (Route 113) and the first entrance into Wawa. It is expected the pavement milling and overlay will be completed by November 17, 2017.
The overall project includes pavement base repair, drainage improvements and pavement overlay of approximately 1.4 miles of Airport Road between DuPont Boulevard (US 113) and Canterbury Road (DE 15). Work on the projected $2.4 million-dollar project is expected to be completed by November 21, 2017.
