Please note there will be minimal to no impact to the public due to this work.
As DelDOT continues to plan ahead for the construction of SR 26 Improvement Project, it wishes to advise motorists and residents that some initial survey work and field review work related to utility relocation will be occurring this summer. There should be little to no traffic impacts for the activities noted below.
DelDOT and representatives from the utility companies will be conducting field reviews on SR 26 between St. Georges Church in Clarksville and the Assawoman Canal to identify future utility pole locations and the new state right-of-way. This will require surveyors to place wooden stakes along the new right-of-way to help identify the location of proposed utilities. This will be followed by field reviews conducted by the project team and the utility companies.
This utility coordination is essential to minimizing the impacts of utility relocation work during construction, as well as impacts to the surrounding communities and traveling public, as we prepare for construction on SR 26. DelDOT will be working closely with the utility companies to ensure that the location of the proposed utilities meets the needs of the project, all while trying to minimize any impacts to adjoining properties. Once the field review has been completed over the next few months, DelDOT will be removing the wooden stakes. Public cooperation during this process is greatly appreciated.
