Delaware’s capital city prepares for street closure

A utility project will require a busy street in Dover to be closed to traffic for more than a week. 


Division Street will be shut down between this Saturday July 9th and about noon on July 17th.  The City of Dover Public Utilities Department says cracks and fractures in an existing sewer line need to be repaired and relined.  Governors Avenue and State Street will remain open, but on given days drivers may experience single lane closures.  For more information please call Dover Public Utilities at 302-736-7070.

Here is a map detailing the Dover closure.
