After years of incredible hard work by the City of Newark, Delaware’s newest rail trail – the Pomeroy Trail – will finally open officially on Monday morning. Senator Carper, who obtained the federal funding for the Trail, and Governor Markell, whose First State Trails and Pathways Initiative is a plan to build many more such trails and link them all up to form a tranportation and recreation bikeway network, will both be on hand to mark this special occasion for the city of Newark.
Bike Delaware has followed the efforts to build the Pomeroy Trail over the last 7 years. We salute Charlie Emerson, Senator Carper and their colleagues for their service to the people of Newark. Not only have they created an asset for the city, they have also opened a door to Delaware’s future. With further visionary leadership from Governor Markell and the General Assembly, Delaware will build a lot more Pomeroy Trails.
From Charlie Emerson, Newark Parks & Recreation — Please join the City of Newark and project partners DelDOT, Delaware State Parks, University of Delaware, University Courtyard Apartments and DART for the opening of the Pomeroy and Newark Rail Trail. Thanks to each of you for your support and, to many of you, for your assistance with the project.
