DOVER – Quite a few big ongoing and new development initiatives may effects traffic around downtown Dover in the coming weeks. This is what you need to know about each project.

Approaching Central Avenue North Drinking water improvements 

The Central Avenue North Water Improvements, an infrastructure undertaking to exchange ageing drinking water mains alongside Central Avenue from Abbey Sawyer Memorial Travel to Glenwood Avenue, is slated to start in early September. It is anticipated to create substantial targeted traffic congestion on upper Central Avenue. 

The Central Avenue North project will switch two sections of drinking water mains. A person is a 133-year-outdated, 14-inch h2o most important from Lowell Avenue to Abbey Sawyer Memorial Generate, a vital piece of the City of Dover’s h2o system infrastructure. The other is an undersized 6-inch drinking water primary from Glenwood Avenue to Lowell Avenue installed in 1927. Both of those mains will be changed with 16-inch ductile iron pipes that are expected to past the next 100-150 decades. The project is expected to be substantially entire by mid to late December, weather allowing.
