An incorrect time for the August 26 meeting of the Dover/Kent County Metropolitan Planning Organization's in Smyrna was listed in last week's issue of the Sun-Times. The meeting, open to the public, will be held August 26 at 7 p.m. at VFW Post 8801.


    The Dover/Kent County Metropolitan Planning Organization’s Public Advisory Committee will meet in the Smyrna-Clayton area on Tuesday, August 26 at 7 p.m., at the Newman-Lee-Urban VFW Post 8801 at 4941 Wheatley’s Pond Road (Route 300), Smyrna.
    Road improvements, bike paths, sidewalks, roundabouts and more are on the agenda.
    Specific items include multiple improvements on Route 8 in Dover, bike paths and sidewalks throughout the county, and a roundabout at the intersection of Loockerman Street  and Forrest Avenue in Dover.
    Mark Luszcz of the state Department of Transportation will talk about the state’s roundabout program, including why and where the state is considering installing roundabouts.
    The committee is a group of appointed citizens who meet every other month to discuss transportation plans and issues in central Delaware while lending the community’s point of view of these topics.
    Committee members are considering a list of 20-year transportation needs for the region. Most of the projects are for road upgrades, such as ensuring travel lanes on roads are wide enough, that they have shoulders and either sidewalks and bike paths or other transit opportunities. The plan also calls for reassessment of passenger rail feasibility.
