Repeat after me:
Bike Lanes! Bike Lanes! Bike Lanes!
No More Right Turn Lanes!
The Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) will hold a public workshop on November 17 at Newark Charter School, 2001 Patriot Way, Newark, Delaware, for proposed improvements to Elkton Road from Casho Mill Road to Delaware Avenue. The public is invited to attend any time between 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. Attendees will be able to view and discuss the proposed improvements along Elkton Road, which were developed through a series of working group meetings and an earlier public workshop. Proposed improvements include:
* Reconstructing the pavement, improving pedestrian, bicycle, transit facilities and intersection improvements.
* Improvements to the Elkton Road/Casho Mill Road intersection include adding a second eastbound left-turn lane on Elkton Road. Providing a left-turn from Casho Mill Road onto eastbound Elkton Road.
* Improvements to the Elkton Road/Apple Road intersection include adding a westbound right-turn lane on Elkton Road and a southbound right-turn lane on Apple Road.
* Elkton Road from Apple Road to Delaware Avenue will be reconstructed to provide one-lane in each direction with a center-turn lane.
As part of the design process, nighttime construction is also being proposed to address traffic and safety issues. For more information, visit HERE. Comments will be received during the workshop or can be mailed to DelDOT Public Relations, P.O. Box 778, Dover, DE 19903.
