DelDot and City of Dover mark completion of West Street Trail
A $400,000 trail is finally complete for bicyclists and pedestrians to use to travel through Dover and connect with the Dover Transit Center. Earlier Friday morning officials from the Delaware Department of Transportation and the City of Dover held a ribbon cutting for the newly completed West Street Trail. The trail includes an 8 to 10 foot wide multi-use path that runs along South West Street. Officials say the trail will help connect many of the city's residents with the Transit Center, while also helping to promote eco-friendly transportation.
"Pedestrians and cyclists are now able to connect with the green and Schutte Park in a much safer manner than it was before. So we're excited, it's a small section but again it's another important link of our ongoing work to create a really comprehensive bike and trail system around the city of Dover," said Community Relations Director C.R. McLeod.
Construction for the trail began back in April, and officials say they plan to expand the trail further throughout the city over the next couple of years.
