Delaware Statewide Bicycle & Pedestrian Plan

Delaware boasts some of the most outstanding bicycle riding in the United States, with bucolic rural farmland, Amish homesteads, charming small towns, and the picturesque Brandywine Valley all within the historical setting of one of the original thirteen colonies. Flat terrain and wide shoulders on the many rural roadways add to its appeal to bicyclists. As part of Delaware DOT’s (DelDOT) continuing efforts to enhance bicycling in the State, Landis Evans staff performed the State’s comprehensive roadway bicycling conditions evaluation. The signature project the Bicycle Level of Service Evaluation was an extensive effort that included the inventory and analysis of over 4,300 miles of state-maintained roadways throughout urban and rural Delaware. The results of the evaluation were used to update Delaware’s Statewide Bicycle (suitability) Maps. They are also used by DelDOT to make project planning & design and bicycle route decisions.
