Well today is a new day and the Pomeroy Trail is back from the dead. Thanks to the hard work of Senator Tom Carper $4.7 million was appropriated for the Pomeroy Trail in the soon to be passed transportation bill (awkwardly called SAFETEA-LU)
The project would use an abandoned rail line to build a bike/pedestrian route connecting the new Newark Train station, the James Hall Bicycle and Pedestrian Trail, the planned Newark Transit Hub, downtown Newark and White Clay Creek State Park. There is also $1 million to improve pedestrian and bicycle access at the University of Delaware-Newark. The money would construct a 360-foot-long bike/pedestrian bridge that will traverse the ravine between the central and Laird Campus.
