Important City Service Update: Our annual leaf collection service was due to be complete last week, but has been extended through December 21 due to late leaf fall resulting in high volume and impact of ice storm debris.  Thank you for your patience.

We are in our final round of leaf & ice storm debris collection and crews are currently working in District 6. We will then proceed in numerical order to Districts 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 then Districts 1, 2 & 3.  Districts 4 & 5 are done for the year, we will not be coming back through before spring.

Residents can visit this page to easily find their leaf district.

If we complete collection in your district and you still need to dispose of leaves you may either place them in your Waste Management toter for collection on your normal pick up day or you can take leaves to our Yard Debris Center on Woodman Center Drive through December 22nd. Yard Debris Center hours are Monday through Friday 3-8 PM and Saturday 9 AM – 3 PM.

Woodman Drive Bridge Replacement – South of Stroop Road

Status Update:

December 3, 2018: The contractor is planning to pour the concrete approach slabs this week and paving the week after Thanksgiving.  We are looking at a completion date during the first half of December.

October 25, 2018: The contractor is pouring the new concrete bridge deck on October 25th, it will then require several weeks for the concrete to cure. Once the bridge deck is cured, they will complete the bridge railing, approach slab and miscellaneous items. We expect the bridge to be back open to traffic around the end of November.

The contractor is anticipating closing Woodman Drive from Wilmington Pike to Stroop Road the week of September 4, 2018.  A Detour will be in place during the duration of the construction.  Construction is expected to be complete in November, 2018.
