City Issues Weekly Traffic and Travel Advisory for Special Events, Street Repaving, Other Construction or Repair Projects

September 26, 2022

Wilmington’s Public Works Department has compiled the attached list of streets on which construction or, maintenance will occur over the next week by the City itself, or by either DelDOT, Delmarva Power, or private contractors. The attached information is for Monday, September 26 through Friday, September 30, 2022.

The City’s website contains a real-time map that is updated daily so you can follow any changes to the weekly schedule caused by weather or other construction-related delays. Public Works Commissioner Kelly Williams said every effort is made to compile the most accurate list each week of street projects that could affect your travel in the City the following week. She cautioned, however, that the time frames for the listed projects could be altered if they are delayed due to factors such as the weather.

Downtown Farmers Market:
Motorists are also reminded that the Downtown Farmers Market takes place at Rodney Square from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. each Wednesday – rain or shine – through October. For this reason, Market Street between 10th and 11th streets will be closed every Wednesday to vehicle traffic from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m.
