Glen Avenue Restoration Project

glen 3The Glen Avenue Restoration Project was swiftly put into action after surveying the damage caused by Tropical Storm Ida.

With the assistance of Delaware Engineering, the board of trustees approved staff’s approach to not only restore the damaged road, but more importantly, to proactively invest funding towards the expansion of the village’s stormwater system for the first time in decades.

The scope of the Glen Avenue project included the implementation of a 3,500-gallon subterranean detention basin at the intersection of Glen Avenue and Haseco Avenue and the installation of 12 stormwater catch basins and ample piping from this intersection up to Leicester Street.

The construction timeline was completed just before the end of 2021 and road/ traffic striping was completed in March of 2022.
