    Another great day today. We had 14 volunteers but managed to finish in the same amount of time as we did in April with 22 volunteers!

    I'm not sure if this was because we had less trash this time, if we were just more efficient, our trendy attire or, was it because we had our resident celebrity participating today (see list & photo below) ... Mr. Mahaney!!!

    All kidding aside, thank you all again for taking the time out of your busy schedules to help make our community just a little better.

    Nice job everyone!!!

    Mike

    Volunteers included: Coogan Cameron, John Eckenrode, John Hayes, Louis Hepp, Gilbert Hofheimer, Heidi Lerch, Pat Miller, Mike Savage, Terry Savage, Denny Shook, Fran Shook (not included in photo), David Wellborn, Randy  Kubetin and Stephen Mahaney.

    From the Cape Gazette - May 26, 2024:

    State transportation officials expect to have a groundbreaking in late 2024 to officially begin the last phases of the Lewes-to-Georgetown Trail. It’s the most popular trail in Delaware.

    Once a contract is awarded, there will be more details where work will take place and a timeline, said Charles McLeod, DelDOT’s director of community relations.

    Work on the trail, which began in 2016, has been completed to the Fisher Road-Hudson Road intersection, with a spur from Fisher Road to Stephen Hudson Park, where the Sussex County Land Trust is creating a trailhead.

    So far, seven phases of the 17-mile paved trail have been completed. Four remain: Fisher Road to Harbeson Road, 7,850 feet; Harbeson Road to Gravel Hill Road, 9,250 feet; Gravel Hill Road to Park Avenue near Georgetown, 8,600 feet; and Park Avenue to Airport Road, 6,200 feet, which totals nearly six miles.

    The trail links to the six-mile Junction & Breakwater Trail to Rehoboth Beach, as well as the Cape Henlopen State Park trails.

    One phase from the Georgetown Little League Park to Airport Road has been completed, which was the first phase built adjacent to a working railroad tracks. The last phases leading up to Georgetown will be constructed along the tracks, with a protective fence added between the trail and tracks.

    The rails have been removed as far as Harbeson on the former railroad bed of the Delaware Central Railroad track. Rails and ties were removed in a $4 million project in 2018 when it was determined that the section of the Delaware Coast Line Railroad from Cool Spring to Lewes should be decommissioned, after DelDOT determined that the cost was too high to repair the damaged 100-year-old Lewes-Rehoboth Canal railroad swing bridge. That bridge has since been removed and is a static display managed by the Lewes Junction Railroad and Bridge Association.

    40 riders from Sussex and Kent counties (31 were members of Sussex Cyclists) participated in the Legislative Bike to Dover (formerly known as the Legislator’s Ride) annual ride on May 22, 2024. Riding to Dover from three start locations (37 miles from Milton led by Mike Schultz, 24 miles from Milford and 4 miles from Wyoming led by Jim Wagner), they rode a combined round trip distance of approximately 2200 miles to demonstrate appreciation of existing and support for continued bicycle friendly legislation that encourages safe and enjoyable cycling in Delaware.

    They met up with approximately 16 cyclists riding from Middletown led by state Senator David Sokola, who led the combined group of over 50 cyclists for the last mile into Legislative Mall where refreshments and a short program was held recognizing the combined efforts of cyclists, the Delaware Bicycle Council, DelDOT, the State Legislature and Governor’s office.
