New Street Addresses for Some State Agencies

January 19th, 2013

Three streets in Dover have been renamed, as of January 19, 2013. Court Street became Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., William Penn Street became Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. South, and Duke of York Street became Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. North.

That means that a number of state offices, including the Governor’s Dover office, the Office of Management and Budget, and the Delaware Public Archives have new addresses. Our business cards will be out of date for a bit, but we can, and did, start updating web site information this week.

Web site managers at OMB report updating over 30 pages. Here at GIC, we reviewed and updated addresses in the database that feeds the public Phone Directory Search tool. That database also provides location information for a number of the affected agency web sites, which makes the update easier. But we’re on the watch for pages, with address information, that we may have missed.

If you see an outdated address on a state agency web site, please send us a short note at gic@delaware.gov and let us know the offending URL.

What we can’t control is the data found in on-line maps such as Google Maps and Bing. We, and the city of Dover, have submitted reports to some of these sites alerting them to the change, but updating national data sets takes time. So forgive us, please, if a locations page we post includes a correct Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in text but shows a map with a pin along William Penn Street.
