The Delaware Department of Transportation will host a public workshop from 4 to 7 p.m. Aug. 17 inside the cafeteria/atrium of Cape Henlopen High School, 1250 Kings Highway, Lewes, to discuss Savannah Road Sidewalk Improvements and Georgetown to Lewes Pathway, Phase II. DelDOT representatives will be in attendance to discuss and receive input from the public. Residents are encouraged 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 II, 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 Conway Road along the railroad corridor. The hot-mix trail will be 10 feet wide and about 3.2 miles in length. Construction is scheduled for fall 2018.

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