WILMINGTON —The orange barrels are rolled out, and along, Rombach Avenue, with lane closings set to begin.

As the News Journal previously reported, Rombach Avenue Improvements Project begins at the intersection of Fife Avenue and Rombach Avenue and terminates at the eastern corporation limit at Starbuck Road.

Phase 1 of the project includes water main construction, minor storm sewer repairs, construction of a shared-use path, pavement repair, improvements to the turn radius at Lowe’s Drive, traffic turnaround construction at the intersection of Progress Way, and signal work.

The first phase requires lane closures starting where East Side Drive meets Rombach Avenue and ending near the traffic signal at 2829 Rombach (NCB Bank/Skyline/Walmart Drive).

During this first phase, the eastbound right travel lane and the westbound right travel lane will be closed. One lane of eastbound traffic, one lane of westbound traffic, and the two-way left turning lane in the middle will be maintained.
