WILMAPCO seeks feedback on local transportation projects
The Wilmington Area Planning Council (WILMAPCO) has released the draft of its FY 2019-2022 Transportation Improvement Program for public review and comment.
The organization — which covers New Castle, Delaware and Cecil counties — proposed $2.2 billion in federally-funded road, transit, rail, multimodal, bicycle and pedestrian projects.
The first open house workshop on the plan will take place Monday, February 26 at the Newark Free Library. WILMAPCO and Delaware Department of Transportation officials will be available to answer questions.
New projects include:
· Expand I-295 northbound from SR 141—US 13
· Improve Otts Chapel Road / Welsh Track Church Road intersection traffic operations
· Realign Shallcross Lake Road between Graylag Road and Boyds Corner Road
· Improve multimodal travel on SR 9 from Landers Lane
Continuing projects include:
· Transit improvements including new rail and bus transit centers in Newark, Claymont and Wilmington, and bus transit park & rides near Christiana Mall and Middletown
· Road improvements feature bridge preservation and safety projects in Cecil and New Castle counties and highway upgrades along I-295 and US 301
· Multimodal projects including improvements for driving, walking, bicycling, and transit users along US 40, Elkton Road, southern New Castle County roads, and City of Wilmington streets
· Bicycle and pedestrian highlights include completion of the New Castle-Wilmington Jack Markell Trail and pedestrian improvements on US 13 and US 40
