The workshop will be held at WILMAPCO offices (map to location).
    If you’re a spreadsheet kind of person, here is the FY2012-2015 TIP

    Of interest to bicyclists are items 55, 56, 84 and 85:

    Item 55: C&D Canal Promenade, Delaware City

    Item 85: Pomeroy Trail

    Item 84, the Industrial Track between Wilmington and New Castle, is the first bicycle project to benefit from the $5M in state bike route money voted by the General Assembly on June 30. Bike Delaware has been fighting hard to get it in the TIP. PLEASE ADD YOUR COMMENT IN SUPPORT!!
