On July 13, 2005 the Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) held a Public Workshop regarding its plan for proposed improvements along the Kennett Pike (SR 52) through Centreville, Delaware. The workshop was held from 3:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Lower Brandywine Presbyterian Church, 101 Old Kennett Road, Wilmington, Delaware.

This workshop was a follow-up to the one held in October of 2004 when three packages of improvements were presented for review and comment. The concept packages included a variety of treatments aimed at reducing speeds through Centreville, improving safety for all users of the public right of way, improving access from side streets onto Kennett Pike, and coordinating aesthetic enhancements with the Centreville Village Plan.

Since the workshop in October of 2004, DelDOT did further analysis on the three concept packages and evaluated the comments received. These findings as well as the preferred concept were presented to the public on July 13th. A short presentation was given at 4:00 p.m. and repeated at 5:30 p.m. to describe the purpose of the workshop and provide details on the analysis of the three original concepts and the preferred concept. The public was also given the opportunity to review display boards and talk to DelDOT staff and consultants about the work done to date.
