Roads: Traffic and Area Studies

Traffic and Area Studies (Updated 10/19/2022)

Identify potential Committee involvement related to the following:

  • Community reported traffic volume and traffic safety concerns and issues.
  • Understanding significant current and planned roadway construction (Corridor Studies) and assess potential impact to the affected communities
  • Understand the impact on traffic due to significant land development projects.
  • Understand the published traffic statistics such as volume, accidents, and deaths.
  • Understand significant current and planned traffic safety initiatives, such as adding/removing cameras or increased/decreased police presence, and assess potential impact to the affected communities.

The Roads Committee will focus on roads within the Brandywine Hundred Boundary

Brandywine Hundred is that portion of New Castle County that lies north of the Christina River and east of Brandywine Creek, excepting that portion in the south included in Wilmington Hundred. Its northern boundary follows a portion of the 12 mile arc that boarders PA.

Do you have a serious concern about the traffic or road construction in Brandywine Hundred area?
Email our ROADS COMMITTEE CHAIRPERSON Rick Buckmaster detailing your concerns. We will let you know what CCOBH might be able to do to provide you with assistance in resolving your concerns.

Planning and Design

Foulk Road Reconstruction and Reconfiguration The primary purpose of this project is to reconstruct the failing pavement and remedy drainage issues. A concept is being studied that would reconfigure the road to create space for a continuous sidewalk, bicycle lanes, a center left turn lane, and one lane of travel for each direction.
Construction Start Date: TBD
Construction End Date: TBD

Project Update: A public workshop was held on July 12 to gauge feedback on a proposed roadway reconfiguration concept. Workshop materials are available online for those who could not attend. We had 241 people attend the in-person public workshop and received a total of 166 comments prior to, during, and after the workshop. As noted at the workshop, while our design team presented a concept plan, our goal was to solicit public input on this plan. No final decisions have been made at this time. Based on public input and coordination with area legislators, we are going back to the drawing board and will look to develop options to address the various concerns expressed. We plan to reengage the community in early 2023.

Stonework for Bridges 1-022 and 1-525 on Shipley Road–Project Partially complete

Adding stone masonry and aluminum railings to the existing bridges 1-022 and 1-525. Construction started on July 18. The stonework for the parapets is experiencing material delays. As a result, there will be a pause on the contract until later this year at which time the capstone and handrail will be installed over a 2-week period. We had anticipated completion by the end of the year, but temperatures may not allow for this work to occur until spring, depending on when the capstone arrives.
Construction Start Date: Spring 2022
Construction End Date: Fall 2022
