Overnight work scheduled for public utilities project

Google Maps

A water valve replacement project will resume Tuesday night in Wilmington along a portion of 16th Street between Castle and Ann Streets. 

The work will take place overnight – from 7 p.m. until 7 a.m. Wednesday morning.  But the project could cause some modest traffic delays according to CFPUA authorities. 

Officials are asking drivers in those areas to give the crews a break and slow down.
Work on the project will affect about 70 customers, who should have already received notice of service interruptions.  Those customers also have a boil-water advisory that will be in effect all this week, from 7 p.m. Tuesday through Friday morning at 8 a.m.
Officials say they expect the work to last three to four days.
