Following a July 9, 2014 vote of the City Council, the City of Dover is beginning the reconstruction of Silver Street. Work spans from the Spaulding Turnpike Exit 8 ramp to Central Avenue, approximately 4,300 linear feet.
The reconstruction of Silver Street originally started as a water main, street and drainage replacement project. Since the initial design started, including input from residents, the project has evolved into an upgrade of a gateway to the downtown. The project now consists of water main replacements, drainage improvements including a rain garden near the Woodman Park School, street and sidewalk reconstruction, landscaping, wayfinding, lighting, and traffic signalization improvements.
As the project begins, and during the course of construction, this page will be updated with important information pertaining to the Silver Street Reconstruction Project.
