The Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) and the City of New Castle County announce a public workshop for two multi-modal trail projects within and near the City of New Castle. The workshop will be held on Tuesday, January 15, 2013 at the William Penn High School cafeteria, at 713 East Basin Road, New Castle, DE 19720. The public is invited to attend any time between 5:15 pm and 8:00 pm.

The Route 273 Multi-Use Trail Facility project proposes to construct a bicycle and pedestrian trail along Route 273 (Frenchtown Road and Delaware Street) from the New Castle Farmers Market to near 10th Street in the City of New Castle. The proposed improvements will connect to the existing New Castle Heritage Trail and the existing Industrial Track Trail.

The Churchmans Road Trail Study will examine alternatives for extending the existing trail along Churchmans Road (near Airport Road) farther east along Churchmans Road and Route 273 and connecting to the SR 273 trail near the New Castle Farmers Market.

This location is accessible to persons having disabilities. Any person having special needs or requiring special aid, such as an interpreter for the hearing impaired, is requested to contact DelDOT by phone or mail one week in advance.
Interested persons are invited to express their views in writing, giving reasons for support of or in opposition to, the proposed project. Comments will be received during the workshop or can be mailed to DelDOT Community Relations, P.O. Box 778, Dover, DE 19903. When applicable, we offer the opportunity to fill out a questionnaire online which will automatically get emailed to Community Relations.
