DelDOT cuts ribbon on Voshells Mill Road Sidewalk project

The Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) and local leaders cut the ribbon on the Voshells Mill Road sidewalk project in the community of Star Hill in Dover.

The $860,000 project laid 1,800 linear feet of sidewalk along Voshells Mill Road past Star Hill Elementary and along Peach Tree Run.

“We know that this project means a great deal to this community and are grateful to Aubrey Hudson, president of the Star Hill Community Association and all of the Star Hill community for their advocacy for this project,” said DelDOT Secretary Jennifer Cohan.

“We are very pleased to see the completion of the sidewalk,” said State Rep. Lyndon Yearick, who joined Secretary Cohan in the ribbon cutting. “There have been countless individuals involved with the project over the years and the sidewalk is a welcome addition to the Star Hill Community.”

Eighty percent of the cost of the project was provided by the Federal Highway Administration through the Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP). DelDOT allocates about $4 million worth of TAP money for sidewalks and similar projects throughout the state each year.
