The DelDOT North District Maintenance Yard at 39 East Regal Boulevard, Newark DE 19713.
The North District is in need of an overall expansion and redevelopment of the North District Maintenance Yard. The yard has reached its capacity in terms of space, and a number of buildings are needed to be newly constructed, replaced and/or renovated. Increased capabilities will include training areas, additional storage areas, additional truck sheds, new hopper racks, a new administration building, an upgraded truck wash, a new salt barn, a new maintenance shop, a new Crew Operations building, and a renovated/retrofit Crew Operations building. Also, there will be a new DOTS Construction building at the intersection of Regal Blvd and Chapman Rd.
The current North District Maintenance Yard will be expanded and redeveloped.
Design work in the final plans stage has recently begun in August 2017.
Construction work to begin in September 2018.
This project anticipates very little impact to the public. Notice the existing salt barn will be replaced at a location 150’+ further back from the residential neighborhood, therefore the noise of trucks in the middle of the night moving salt should be anticipated to be less than it is at the present time. Also, the existing storage materials which are adjacent to the neighborhood have been moved back and replaced with a more passive area used for landscape buffer and/or a stormwater management area.
