The Dover/Kent County Metropolitan Planning Organization is seeking the public's perspective on proposed updates to its regional bicycle plan.

A public comment period will run from July 10 to Aug. 9.

The MPO's Technical Advisory Committee and Public Advisory Committee will each review the revised plan before the document goes to the MPO Council for final review and approval.

The MPO first published its Regional Bicycle Plan in 2012. Work started in 2016 to set new goals and objectives for bicycling in central Delaware based upon existing infrastructure and what's been accomplished in the last few years.

A draft of the updated plan and a copy of the original plan are available at To request a copy of the plan in another format, or to comment on the plan over the telephone, call the MPO office at 387-6030. Comments are accepted via email to or to the MPO office at P.O. Box 383, Dover, DE 19903.
