In this newsletter, I provide information on an important community meeting to discuss the Kirkwood Highway and South Union Street construction project. This is a major DelDOT initiative that is necessary to update the infrastructure of our local highway, Route 2. As many of you know, this is going to be a yearlong project. I will do my best to pass information along as it becomes available.
In addition, the Elsmere community does a great job of organizing celebratory events for the community. I’ve highlighted a couple of them below.
Finally, I am always happy to help if you have a government related matter with which you need assistance. In these situations please know that you can call my office as a resource.
