The Department of Transportation (DelDOT) is holding a Public Workshop to obtain opinions and insight from surrounding businesses and the general public for the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) project at the intersection of Foulk Road and Murphy/Wilson Road. The workshop will be held on Tuesday, September 28, 2010 at Concord Presbyterian Church, 1800 Fairfax Boulevard in Wilmington. The public is invited to attend. There will be a formal presentation at 6:00 p.m. followed by breakout groups for questions and answers until 9:00 p.m.
This project was identified as an HSIP project location in 2003. This project includes the rehabilitation and reconfiguring of the intersection at Foulk Road and Murphy/Wilson Road. Modifications are proposed to the entrances of the businesses located at the intersection and the entrance to Fairfax Blvd on Foulk Road to reduce the number of accidents associated with those entrances. Pedestrian improvements will also be made within the project limits. Public notice, including project description, workshop time and location, is found HERE.
It should be noted bicycle safety is not mentioned in the description. If you feel there are bicycle-related issues and potential for improvement at this intersection, please attend the workshop and let DelDOT know.
