Here’s What’s Happening with Delaware’s Byways

Delaware Greenways is a partner on all three byway development working groups.

 

Brandywine Valley National Scenic Byway:

  • We’ve completed the Greenville Village and Scenic Conservation Plan Studies.
  • We are working on the Design Guidelines that reflect the work of the Brandywine Valley National Scenic Byway Partnership and the Red Clay Byway.

 

Delaware Bayshore Byway

  • We are working with DNREC’s Division of Fish and Wildlife to improve their Wildlife Areas along the Byway with new observation platforms and signing within the Wildlife Areas to guide visitors
  • We are working with DelDOT to sign the Byway with signs guiding visitors to venues along its more than 100 mile length.
  • In its leadership role in managing the Bayshore Byway, Delaware Greenways is leading the Management Committee, consisting of representatives of the communities, the non-profit community helping to preserve the Bayshore, and residents and businesses all along the Byway.

 

Historic Lewes Byway:

  • We  have a new brand for the Historic Lewes Byway that will appear on byway signs and marketing materials.
  • We are excited that Sussex County has endorsed the Corridor Management Plan.
  • We’ve made progress on installing landscaping and other road additions to improve conditions for walkers and cyclists traveling to the beach on Savannah Road.
  • We will be completing the Lewes Landscape Master Plan that gives developers and existing neighborhoods guidelines for road improvements and landscaping plans.
