SR26 Advanced Overhead Utility Relocations

Written on: July 3rd, 2013 in Route 26

DelDOT’s self-imposed July 1 deadline for lane closures along SR26 has come and gone, and as planned utility companies have completed their scheduled work on time. This means that as of July 1, 2013 lane closures will no longer be required for overhead utility relocation work along Route 26. Overhead utility relocation work will continue through the summer, but without the need for lane closures. Delmarva Power and Verizon will continue to work on underground services, street light installation, moving facilities from old poles to new poles, and old pole removal. Thanks to the hard work of Delmarva Power, Verizon, Mediacom, and their sub-contractors, nearly half of the project’s utility relocation effort has been completed! DelDOT would like to congratulate Delmarva Power, Verizon, Mediacom and their sub-contractors on reaching this important milestone in the SR26 project. DelDOT would also like to thank the traveling public along Route 26 for their patience and understanding during this difficult operation.
