City of Wilmington

17th Street – periodic closures as work has begun on a streetscape project between Wrightsville Avenue and Dock Street and Princess Place and Grace Street. No on-street parking will be allowed between Market and Grace Streets during some days to minimize nighttime construction. The $1.3 million project is expected to take about a year to complete.
