Market Street Phase III Public Outreach,
This is an on-going HFA project, where we provide a variety of outreach techniques
to educate the business and residential community about the construction progress
on the third phase of this streetscaping project. The Market Street Corridor, which
defines Wilmington’s Central Business District, is currently undergoing repairs to
property vaults, complete reconstruction of the roadbed, curbs, and sidewalks,
and new landscaping, including pedestrian scaled lighting. Two intersections
along the corridor are also being reconstructed and will have upgraded traffic
signals. HFA develops and facilitates public information sessions, drafts bimonthly
E-newsletters that reaches over 130 people, and distributes “frequently
asked questions” about a variety of Market Street construction issues.
In 2005, HFA also provided similar outreach techniques during the water main
construction, and gas main and service construction along Market Street, which
were completed prior to the current streetscape construction.
