    The Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT), along with various partner agencies, including the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC), the Wilmington Area Planning Council (WILMAPCO) Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) and the Dover/Kent Metropolitan Planning Organization among others, is holding three Public Workshops regarding the First State Trails & Pathways Initiative.

    Each workshop will present pathway information pertaining to the county in which the workshop is located. There will not be formal presentations, but display boards and other information will be provided. The public is encouraged to come to the workshops and discuss the projects with planning personnel on-hand or to submit written comments and ideas.

    This location is accessible to persons having disabilities. Any person having special needs or requiring special aid, such as an interpreter for the hearing impaired, is requested to contact DelDOT by phone or mail one week in advance.

    Interested persons are invited to express their views in writing, giving reasons for support of or in opposition to, the proposed project. Comments will be received during the workshop or can be mailed to DelDOT Public Relations, P.O. Box 778, Dover, DE 19903. When applicable, we offer the opportunity to fill out a questionnaire online which will automatically get emailed to Public Relations.  For further information contact Public Relations at 1-800-652-5600 (in DE) or 302-760-2080, write to the above address, or visit the Delaware Trails and Pathways web site.
