Construction to start soon on roads in Delhi Township

DELHI TOWNSHIP - Nearly $1.2 million in road reconstruction will begin soon on Alomar and Hibernia drives.

The project is being funded by three sources: a State Capital Improvements Program grant of $942,041; an SCIP loan of $70,459 and a township contribution of $172,014, funded by tax increment financing, said Township Roads Superintendent Robert Bass.

About one mile of roadway will be affected, and local traffic will be maintained. Work will begin in late February, Bass said.

TIF funds - generated by taxes on new developments - will be used to pay back the zero percent, 20-year SCIP loan, said Township Administrator Joe Morency.

"We get about $900,000 a year from TIF and $600,000 or so is used to pay off bonds for the firehouses," Morency said.

Bass said the project will include tearing out all the pavement and replacing it with new curb and gutter and a new asphalt surface. The drainage system will be upgraded, and sidewalks and driveway aprons will be replaced. Minor work will be done on water lines, but other utilities will not be affected.

The contract was awarded to Baker Concrete Construction Inc., of Monroe. The contract has a completion date of November, Bass said, but could finish earlier.
