The Department of Transportation will host a public workshop for Savannah Road sidewalk improvements and Georgetown to Lewes Pathway, phase two, from 4 to 7 p.m. Aug. 17 at the Cape Henlopen High School Cafeteria/Atrium, 1250 Kings Highway, Lewes.

DelDOT representatives will discuss and receive input from the public. DelDOT welcomes input and encourages residents to identify and discuss project related issues throughout the design process.

Savannah Road pedestrian study is part of the Bicycle and Pedestrian Feasibility Study that reviews nonvehicular facilities throughout Delaware to determine opportunities for improvement. This study corridor is along Savannah Road from Quaker Road east to the railroad crossing and is about 3,700 feet in length. At the railroad crossing, the sidewalk would tie into the Georgetown to Lewes Trail. The proposed sidewalk will pass Cape Henlopen High School and connect into the existing pedestrian facilities.

Georgetown to Lewes Trail Pathway, phase two, is a project that proposes to extend the Georgetown to Lewes Pathway from Savannah Road west heading under the Nassau Bridge and terminating at Minos Conaway Road along the railroad corridor. The hot-mix trail will be 10-feet wide and approximately 3.2 miles in length. Construction is scheduled for fall 2018.

Interested persons are encouraged to express their views in writing, giving reasons for support of or in opposition to the proposed projects. Comments will be received during the public workshop; can be mailed to DelDOT Community Relations, P.O. Box 778, Dover, DE 19903; sent via email to; or faxed at 739-2092.
