DOVER/KENT MPO ANNOUNCES TOWN OF BOWERS BICYCLE AND PEDESTRIAN STUDY

BOWERS, DELAWARE: The Dover/Kent County Metropolitan Planning Organization has released the final document for the Town of Bowers Bicycle and Pedestrian Improvements Study. It was voted on for final approval at the Council Meeting held on September 7, 2022.

The purpose of the study is to describe the existing transportation conditions within Bowers and along Bowers Beach Road. The publication offers various alternatives that would improve bicycle and pedestrian access in the surrounding area, as well as suggesting a number of recreational amenities within the town.

Ada Puzzo, Mayor of Bowers, said in a speech earlier this summer that the MPO “was instrumental in not only doing this tremendous study, but also acting as a goodwill partner that allowed the Town of Bowers to create even more opportunities.”

The entire study can be read on the Dover Kent MPO website at www.doverkentmpo.org.

Any questions or concerns about this study can be directed to James Galvin, Principal Planner at james.galvin@doverkentmpo.org.

The Dover/Kent County Metropolitan Planning Organization is a federally mandated not-for-profit that works with local, state and federal governments along with local transportation organizations to ensure that transportation planning and projects are done in compliance with Federal law to include the Federal Clean Air Act and the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST).

The Dover/Kent County Metropolitan Planning Organization is committed to equity and Title VI compliance. Title VI and Environmental Justice stem from the 1964 Civil Rights Act stating that “No person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”
