    Poster’s note:  There are no bicycle facilities mentioned with this project as of yet. Currently, it is home to the bicycling recycling program that is run by Anthony Aglio, DelDOT’s Bicycle Coordinator. Ideas include building the project into a truly multimodal hub, where one can find bike parking and other amenities to encourage bicycling instead of driving . Supportive comments will be very helpful.

    The Delaware Transit Corporation (DTC) has developed a Master Plan for the Lewes Park & Ride and Transit Maintenance Facility. The proposed facility will be located at the former Wright Chrysler Dealership on Route 1 outside Lewes, near Five Points. The Master Plan calls for a 230+ park and ride facility with seven bus stalls and a covered passenger boarding area. An indoor waiting area will also be provided that includes a ticket window, restrooms, vending machines, and visitor information. On the south side of the property (along Shady Road) a maintenance facility with bus parking, fueling, and drivers lounge is planned. The initial plans call for building two maintenance bays with the ability to add two additional bays at a later date. Funding is being programmed for Fiscal Years 2013 and 2014 and includes a $5 million grant from the Federal Transit Administration.

    The Public Workshop will be held on June 11, 2012 at the Cape Henlopen High School from 4p.m. to 7p.m.
