Acting on a tip from a co-worker today, I altered my usual commute and pedaled over to the intersection of Casho Mill Road and Rt.273 (Nottingham Rd) in Newark. What I found not only made my day, but my entire year so far. Gone were the right turn-only lanes, in favor of bike lanes. Now, this is something you don’t see everyday!
The rest of my ride home was very pleasant, encountering several other cyclists as I continued east on Rt.273 into Newark, then on to Delaware Ave bike lanes with plenty of students on their bikes, and eventually back home in Ogletown.
This was a great day, one of renewed hope that Complete Streets will become a reality in Delaware. Thanks to Anthony Aglio, and those at DelDOT who work tirelessly on behalf of the non-motorized.
