The office of Planning and Development is working on several initiatives to improve our Town infrastructure, including:
Our FY2021 pavement management program began on Monday, May 4th in the communities of Woodland Park, Country Village, Country Estates, Sea Oaks, and Grand View Shores. Crews have been busy applying a micro-surface to roadways that were patched during the past year. These efforts will continue to preserve our roadways and extend their life cycle.
A project to repair and replace damaged curb along Willow Oak Avenue began on April 27th. This effort allows for curb to be repaired ahead of future paving projects.
Improvements to ADA accessibility in the Savannah’s Landing Community commenced on April 19th. This project involves removing and replacing driveway aprons to bring the slope of the walking surface into compliance with ADA Guidelines.
The design of Phase 1 sidewalks within the Town’s right of way to increase safety and walkability along West Avenue between State Route 26 and John West Park is 90% complete. A meeting will be held with the community at completion of design to unveil our plan. This work will include new inlets to improve drainage along this segment of West Avenue.
The design of Phase 2 sidewalks within the Town’s right of way to increase safety and walkability along Woodland Avenue between SR 26 and Hudson Avenue began May 1st.
The design for drainage improvements and geometric improvements at the intersection of Woodland Avenue and Daisey Avenue will begin in the coming months. This project may also include the construction of sidewalks from the Woodland/Daisey Intersection to the Assawoman Canal Trail on Central Avenue.
Drainage improvements are scheduled for the Country Village Community along S. Primrose Lane and South Horseshoe Drive. It is anticipated that this work will commence in September. These improvements will include new inlets to improve drainage.
Drainage improvements are scheduled for the Country Estates Community along Colt Lane and Frontier Drive. It is anticipated that this work will commence in September.
Drainage improvements are scheduled for the Mitchell Estates Community along Mitchell Avenue between Delaware Avenue and Sussex Avenue and Woodland Avenue, prior to Betts Avenue. This work will commence during the month of May.
The Fairway Village Community is nearing completion and the final layer of pavement will be placed this year. At that time, the roadways in the single family section of the community will be inspected by the Town Engineer. If the roads meet Town standards, the improvements will be turned over to the Town for all future maintenance.
The roadways in Ocean View Beach Club will not receive the final layer of pavement until the entire community has been completed.
We’re focusing on maintaining and improving our built environment in Ocean View!
