Nick McWilliams reporting – The city of Dover will start their street paving in just under two weeks.

Announced by Service Director Dave Douglas, the extensive roadworks spanning a large area of the city will start on August 19th.

Douglas says that the budget was healthy this year, and a projected completion date is still up in the air.

“It’s hard to tell, it really is. I think we’re going to spend a lot of time in Union Avenue and Wooster Avenue, because they’re large streets and we’ve got a lot of work to do on those. [We’re] over $400,000 this year, almost $450,000. Some of that will be profiling too. We feel pretty fortunate being able to do that.”

The long list of streets includes both Schaar and Hillside Drive.

Douglas adds that some work will be based upon waterline work completion.

“Once the waterline project is complete on Highland [Avenue,] they’ll come back and they’ll come back and pave Highland and Second Street, at that intersection, down to Bell Avenue.”

Residents should be aware of possible delays along normal routes due to paving.

As with any road resurfacing, all work is subject to delay due to weather.
