DelDOT Releases List of Potential Stimulus Projects

by Dave on February 12, 2009

DelDOT has released a list of the targeted projects for funds Delaware would receive from the stimulus package currently being debated in Congress. Among them:

Rehoboth Park & Ride/Destination Station

Description: The purpose of this project is to reconfigure DTC Park and Ride entrance and internal road system so that the park and ride site can accommodate both the current bus operations and the planned Destination Station.
Cost: $500,000. The U.S. Congress, under SAFETEA-LU, has provided $1 million in federal earmark funds to support the creation of Destination Station.
Justification: The reconfiguration will be the first phase of a larger transit system expansion project that will result in the creation of several additional park and ride lots along Route 1 from Nassau to the current site. It will also provide the site and basic transportation system improvements needed to support the creation of the science/energy technology exhibition center known as Destination Station.
Status: Should be no environmental/permitting issues.

Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk Refurbishment Phase II and III

Description: Boardwalk Restoration from Henlopen Hotel to Rehoboth Avenue and from Laurel Street to Prospect Street as well as area adjacent to Rehoboth Avenue.
Cost: $7.4 million
Justification: The current wooden boardwalk is becoming a safety issue. This benefits not only pedestrian accessibility but enhances tourism.
Status: Working with the City of Rehoboth.
