The Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) is undertaking a project that involves the reconstruction of Route 26, Atlantic Avenue, from Clarksville to the Assawoman Canal in Sussex County Delaware. The purpose of the project is to improve traffic operations, safety, and roadway conditions within the project area.
Construction of the four-mile long project will widen the existing two-lane roadway to include two 11-foot travel lanes with five-foot shoulder/bike lanes and a 12-foot wide continuous shared center left turn lane. The segment of Route 26 from Clarksville to west of Railway Road would be an open section with roadside drainage ditches. The section from west of Railway Road to the Assawoman Canal would be a closed section with curb, gutter, and closed drainage. The majority of the closed section would also have a 3-foot grass strip behind the curb and gutter that will be used for utilities. Five-foot wide sidewalks would be provided from Windmill Road to the Assawoman Canal.
Construction is scheduled to begin before the end of 2013 and last for at least 2 and one half years. DelDOT intends to complete construction before the beginning of the 2016 summer season. All interested parties are invited to attend this informational workshop to learn about construction details, construction phasing, road closures, and many other project related specifics.
As this project has already been through the public review process, this workshop is intended to provide the public with as much information as possible about the upcoming construction on SR26. There is no public comment period required.
