Cleveland Ave. Task Force concludes

photo of Cleveland Avenue as it looks in 2016On Wednesday, October 5, the Cleveland Avenue Improvement Task Force concluded its eight-month effort to consider curb-to-curb upgrades of Cleveland Avenue that could be integrated into DelDOT’s upcoming pave-and-rehab project. The committee voted on the following improvements based on the results of modeling work and analyses conducted by DelDOT. These will now be considered by the Newark Traffic Committee and, if approved, will then move on to the Newark City Council for final approval.

  • Eastbound and westbound bike lanes from New London Road to Kirkwood Highway
  • A “road diet” between Paper Mill and Kirkwood Highway (reducing two travel lanes each direction to one travel lane each direction plus a middle left-turn lane)
  • Crosswalk improvements at the Wilbur Street intersection
  • Addition of a crosswalk near the McKees Lane intersection
  • Changing the travel direction on Margaret Street to one-way, northbound

All task force meetings were open to the public and neighboring property owners were invited to participate in the work of the committee. The committee represented a number of stakeholders in the community.
