Project Limits:

This project was located along Route 273 from the New Castle Farmers Market to the intersection of Route 273 and Churchmans Road, and then along Churchmans Road to approximately Airport Road.

Project Need

The Churchmans Road Pathway project proposed to investigate the best alternative for a bicycle and pedestrian pathway that fills a gap between the Route 273 Multi-Use Trail (T201120013) at the New Castle Farmers Market to an existing pathway at Airport Road.

Project Overview:

The design was that of a ten-foot wide, asphalt pathway for bicycles and pedestrians that will comprise a segment of the Maine-to-Florida East Coast Greenway (ECG), as well as be a part of the First State Trails and Pathways network. Additional phases of the Churchmans Road Pathway could extend west to Christiana Mall, Christiana Hospital and Fairplay Station at Delaware Park.
