WILMAPCO - SR 141 20 Year Transportation and Land Use Plan Project Page

The Route 141 corridor is a major arterial which links City of New Castle to US 202/I-95 near Blue Ball. In many ways the road functions as a western beltway of Wilmington serving local and regional trips. Several other arterials intersect SR 141 such as Kirkwood Highway (SR 2), Concord Pike (US 202) and Newport-Gap Pike (SR 48). Land uses vary along the corridor with a mix of residential types, neighborhood shopping centers, large corporate office campuses, and institutions including a regional hospital. While much of the land adjacent to the roadway is developed, there is a significant amount of development nearby that is recorded but not built.

The objective is to study the SR 141 corridor and:

- Identify key issues, challenges, and opportunities for developing alternative transportation and land use approaches for enhancing mobility, safety, quality of life, and economic vitality in the corridor.
- Develop innovative approaches to managing congestion and growth along the corridor.
- Address near term and long range solutions with an emphasis on strengthening alternative travel    modes and options, travel demand management, integration of sustainable transportation and land use planning
- Seek options and alternatives for promoting more sustainable patterns of development.
- Develop an annual corridor monitoring/plan implementation process
The outcome of the plan will be a consensus-based plan which will guide transportation and land use policy for the corridor over the next twenty years. Consensus building and establishment of stakeholder support for the plan is a key element in this process. This will be accomplished through a facilitated stakeholder outreach process that will include meetings and interactive workshops.  Look for more details on this project in early 2015.
