Glasgow Avenue Main Street Study

WILMAPCO, DelDOT, and New Castle County are leading a transportation and land use study for Glasgow Avenue, between US 40 and SR 896/Porter Road (about 1.3 miles).  The study is intended to create a “Main Street” vision plan to guide transportation improvements and land use along Glasgow Avenue.  Before the construction of the 896/Glasgow bypass, this section of old SR 896 functioned as an arterial roadway with limited access points. The roadway has now become more of a “Main Street” with mostly local trips to and from newly developed businesses, schools and residential areas. With added development activity planned, this roadway will continue to face mobility and safety challenges.

Goals and Objectives

The goal of the project is to provide a safe and attractive transportation system along the roadway that encourages more non-motorized trips and better connectivity between land uses.

Land Use and Transportation Design Alternatives

Perform model/design analysis to evaluate current conditions along the corridor and the effect of identified future land use and transportation alternatives.

Compare Results of Analysis and Alternatives

A comparison of the land use, demographic, environmental and transportation impacts of the scenarios/designs will be developed.
