New crosswalk and bike lane at key Ogletown intersection

A big tip of the helmet to Senator Karen Peterson for pushing this project through. The Red Mill Road/Route 273 (Ogletown Road) crossroads is a favorite of area bicyclists and pedestrians connecting between Harmony Woods, Prides Crossing and Chestnut Hill Estates. It is also key in the planning of an on-road Newark to Wilmington Bikeway, which advocates hope will become a reality someday.



What a difference a year makes. Below are pictures of the same intersection, before improvements were made. We thank Senator Karen and DelDOT for taking a pro-active approach to safety, by acting now before a non-motorized user was injured or killed. There are plenty of States that a change of this magnitude could only happen after multiple fatalities.
