Lower Central Avenue Redesign Project

Lower Central Avenue Redesign Project

The City of Dover, as part of the ongoing Capital Improvements Program, will redesign Lower Central Avenue between Silver Street and Stark Avenue, including replacing the existing 150-year-old water line, reconstructing the outdated drainage collection and conveyance system, as well as updating streets and sidewalks.

While a construction schedule has not yet been finalized, construction is expected to begin as soon as the spring of 2021. To assist with the project's design work, the City of Dover has engaged Sebago Technics, Inc., a consulting firm involved with Dover transportation initiatives for many years. As part of Sebago's work, the City will explore design alternatives, including additional on-street parking, updating bus stop locations, bike lanes, traffic-calming measures, sidewalk improvements, visual amenities such as landscaping, wayfinding signage and lighting.

Before work begins, the City intends to meet with abutters and residents for input on the project.
