Low-Bidder Announced for Town of Dagsboro Streetscape Improvements


Dover– The Department of Transportation (DelDOT) announces that Dixie Construction Company Inc. is the low bidder for the Town of Dagsboro streetscape improvements. For this project, the Maryland-based firm submitted a bid of $245,310.22, the lowest of eight bids received.

The Town of Dagsboro applied for the Transportation Enhancement (TE) Program as part of their downtown revitalization effort and to improve pedestrian mobility in the area. The required match will be raised by the town.

The streetscape enhancements will include new curbing, placing a patterned synthetic asphalt system that is a brick pattern for the sidewalks and crosswalks, street signs, decorative lighting, and landscaping. In addition, the current traffic signal will be upgraded with mast arms (instead of wires), which will allow DelDOT’s Transportation Management Center (TMC) to continuously monitor and adjust signal timings (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) in Dagsboro. The location of the project will be along Main and Clayton Streets. The construction will begin in mid-spring and will be completed in approximately 68 calendar days.
