DelDOT Bicycle Facilities Master Plan Update

For the past several months, DelDOT has been working on finalizing the statewide network of on-road bicycle routes, design recommendations, and implementation plan that will comprise the Delaware Bicycle Facilities Master Plan

The work included:

  • Public workshops held in the end of September to update stakeholders on the plan's progress and solicit input on the plan. (See Comment Card Results section for summary)
  • Development of a final network of bicycle routes, through identification of bicyclist needs, stakeholder input, existing conditions, and compatibility with various current statewide policies and programs.
  • Creation of route numbering system, per public comments, with county designations (e.g. NC-1, K-1, S-1) and statewide designation (e.g. Bicycle Route 1,2,3).
  • Establishment of design guidelines for bikeway facilities and treatments through coordination with DelDOT engineers and planners as well as review of national standards.
  • Creation of an implementation and prioritization plan to ensure consistent and correct application of the plan as time goes on.
  • Identification of potential funding sources for bicycle projects.
  • Development of bicycle route ping on a statewide and county level using geographic information system (GIS) technology.

The Draft Plan was submitted to the DE Register for inclusion in the June publication. Comments on the Executive Summary and Draft Plan from June 1, 2005 through June 30, 2005. The Executive Summary and the Draft Plan will be available through this website throughout the comment period.

Thank you for your input for this plan and we look forward to see you bicycling throughout Delaware!

DelDOT Bicycle Facilities Master Plan Update

For the last several months, DelDOT has been working to develop recommendations for the Bicycle Facilities Master Plan.

The work includes:

  • Review of the numerous comments from the public workshops and the project web site. This feedback is being incorporated into the recommendations for the plan.
  • Review of investment areas identified in the State Policies and Strategies Spending.
  • Identifying demand through the identification of activity centers, parks and tourism destinations, schools, and bike friendly employers.
  • Conducting field work and examined bicycling conditions along roadways throughout the state. The team has paid special attention to areas where the public noted safety concerns on proposed routes.
  • Developing a preliminary network of on-road bicycle routes to improve local, regional, and statewide bicycle travel conditions. The initial draft will be presented at the next set of public workshops.
  • Developing recommendations for design guidelines.

We will be holding another round of public workshops on the Bicycle Facility Master Plan recommendations at the end of September.

Thank you for your input and we look forward to receiving your comments on the draft plan at our next workshop.
