  • Project Update (as of June 9, 2017): The main installation for first project phase—Garland, Eastman and Lakewood Roads—has been completed. Construction on the second project phase is expected to begin soon. The crew is on target for completing the entire gas main installation by early to mid-July.

    Northwood is a 105-single-family, residential community located in northern Wilmington, Delaware.


    In 2015, the neighborhood’s residents started a grassroots effort for bringing natural gas service to their homes. In 2016, the community obtained the required number of applications to move the main extension project forward, solidifying its place in our 2017 project plan.

    Following a competitive bid process to partner with an approved contractor, we expect construction to begin mid-April, weather permitting. The construction project will include installing approximately 6,000 feet of new natural gas main throughout the community. This extensive project is projected to conclude with final restoration in September 2017. Please visit this page for construction updates throughout the project period.
