Responding to Action Alerts can make a difference

1 year ago, we posted the following question to our readers:

It begs to question, however, why they made extra sure to mark [the Pomeroy Trail's] beginning and end at Creek Road. Creek Road - mainly a state park and fishing access road - is every bit as popular as a bicycle and pedestrian facility, and if anything, should have "Bike Route", and/or "Share the Road" signage and be marked as such.

We asked our readers to contact DelDOT if they agreed with this opinion, and they did. Kudos to Anthony Aglio, Bicycling Coordinator for hearing our voice, and acting in the best interest of bicyclists and pedestrians!

June 2013: "Bike Route ENDS" sign posted below the Stop Sign (click to enlarge).
June 2014: "Bike Route ENDS" sign was removed, exact date unknown.

  1. There is no question that speaking up makes a difference. That old expression, "the squeaky wheel gets the grease" holds true. We can't expect DelDOT to read our minds. We have to let them know. . . .
