Congratulations to Delaware Greenways for its successful application, which resulted in the award of a National Scenic Byways Program grant from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to the Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) in the amount of $913,420 for the Delaware Bayshore Byway. Delaware Greenways and DelDOT are two of BikeNewark’s seven partner organizations.
A group of Delaware Greenways volunteers worked diligently with DelDOT to write the application that won the grant.
Delaware Greenways asserted that “[t]his project will improve, increase, and broaden the use of non-motorized travel and recreation options along the Delaware Bayshore Byway, a National Scenic Byway. The… combined Master Plan [will include] a Bicycle/Pedestrian Plan… that will augment the existing Corridor Management Plan.”
BikeNewark truly believes that partnerships are critical to “moving the needle” for bicycle-centric improvements here in Delaware. This is precisely why we describe BikeNewark as “a partnership of interested cyclists and organizations working to improve bicycling in Newark, Delaware.”
