Regional Bicycle PlanDate Posted: Sunday, July 14th, 2013
In September 2011, Dover Kent County Metropolitan Planning Organization adopted its Regional Bicycle Plan.
The bike plan aims to create an effective, safe bicycle system in central Delaware. It shows where there are bicycle trails, lanes and similar facilities in central Delaware and where there are gaps in service. In addition, the plan addresses the need for bicyclists and motorists to share the road, increase recreational biking as well as encourage people to bike to work or school.
The plan was the result of the MPO’s 2008 Regional Transportation Plan, in which public comments expressed a need for more bicycle facilities.
