• East Coast Greenway interim route signs appear in Delaware

    The East Coast Greenway is a developing long-distance, urban, shared-use trail system linking 25 major cities along the eastern seaboard between Calais, Maine and Key West, Florida. It will serve non-motorized users of all abilities and ages. A 3,000-mile long spine route will be accompanied by 2,000 miles of alternate routes that link in key cities, towns, and areas of natural beauty. This green travel corridor will provide cyclists, walkers, and other muscle-powered modes of transportation with a low-impact way to explore the eastern seaboard.

    Over 25 percent of the route is already on safe, traffic-free paths. However, most will remain routed on roads until alignments are found. In the interim, a very attractive sign at each intersection will guide users between these off road segments, and we are proud to announce that placement in Delaware is well underway. The photo above was taken at the intersection of Chrysler Ave and Elkton Road in Newark, .5 miles before the west entrance of the James F. Hall Trail.
