The Delaware Department of Transportation and local leaders cut the ribbon on the Voshells Mill Road sidewalk project in the Star Hill community in Dover on Oct. 5.

The $860,000 project laid 1,800 linear feet of sidewalk along Voshells Mill Road and past 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.

Cohan, Rep. Lyndon Yearick and Star Hill community members cut the ribbon on the recently completed sidewalk improvement project.

“We are very pleased to see the completion of the sidewalk,” said Yearick, who joined 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. DelDOT allocates about $4 million worth of TAP money for sidewalks and similar projects throughout the state each year.
