    Representatives of a consortium of Delaware organizations will attend today’s Wilmington Area Planning Council (WILMAPCO) to comment on the opportunity to complete the final phase of the Wilmington-to-New Castle bicycle highway in the wake of the vote by the Delaware General Assembly on June 30 to vote $5,000,000 for state bike routes.

    Bike Delaware last spoke to the WILMAPCO Council about this project almost exactly 1 year ago today.

    Please join us if you are interested in sharing your views with the Council on the amazing opportunity they have to advance this project.

    The Council meets at 6:30PM in Newark. Map showing meeting location at 850 Library Ave, Suite 100, Newark HERE.
