Historic Concord Pike plans being discussed

Talleyville fire hallFor those of us who live in the area of North Wilmington called Brandywine Hundred, Concord Pike (Route 202) is a constant in our lives.  I expect there will be a big crowd on July 25 from 6-8 p.m. at the Talleyville Fire Hall (photo)  when a 20 year plan for the area is discussed.



How many more fast food joints can the area stand? Where mile markercan we make U-turns to get to businesses and homes on the other side of the median? Can the pain be relieved at the intersection of 202 and Silverside where a tangle of traffic lanes come together? (Photo 4 miles to Wilmington historic mile marker). What about that really long traffic light in Fairfax at Murphy Road?


Wilmington University was granted a traffic waiver and agreed to modify class start memorial to Ionetimes and encourage public transportation for students and faculty for their new campus already appearing on the skyline at Naamans Rd. and 202. Citizens had fought a new shopping center at the location in the past and this was felt to be a more manageable solution. (Photo: memorial to Ione the fire horse in front of Talleyville Fire Station ) I hope it works out for those of us who travel that intersection and the businesses already located close by.

I am concerned, given all of the new development pieces in the works. You are right. It should be a big crowd!

Is it just me, or is anyone else disappointed that last nights information session was, long on introduction, and short on presentation? I was expecting a slide presentation on "The Master Plan will provide a 20-year vision that identifies cohesive land use and transportation strategies." Instead, after 30 minutes of introduction (to a standing-room-only crowd) was directed to look at some display boards that we know nothing about. Does anyone know where these presentation boards are on the Wilmapco website? https://www.facebook.com/201134183431102/photos/a.204657783078742.1073741828.201134183431102/856205951257252/?type=3&theater
