Kent County in Delaware is about to undertake the repair of aging wastewater pipeline along the median of U.S. Route 13 in Dover.

The Wilmington News Journal reports that it’s a long promised project that will stretch 2.8 miles and is sure to give motorists along the busy route congestion headaches.

The project calls for inserting a 18-to-20 inch plastic pipe into a 24-inch concrete sewage pipe.

The paper says it will run from West Denney’s Road near Delaware Technical Community College to South Garden Lanes near Burlington.

The project is now in the design phase with bids expected to be sent out at least by October.
