Route 202 Corridor
US 202 Corridor Master Plan
The US Route 202 (US 202) corridor stretches from New Castle, DE to Bangor, ME. The proposed study area is a six mile stretch of this corridor – from the City of Wilmington line to the Delaware/Pennsylvania State Line. The study area also includes the area at the southwest edge of US 202 that borders the City of Wilmington and the Brandywine Creek. This is a highly valuable and heavily commercialized stretch of roadway that mixes retail, restaurants, residential areas, office complexes and recreational and institutional uses.
The objective of the US 202 corridor Master Plan is to follow up on the results of the US 202 Market Assessment performed in 2017. The assessment proposed the development of a corridor master plan to recommend physical improvements and governmental policies regarding transportation and land use. This study will provide a 20-year vision that identifies cohesive land use and transportation strategies to ensure that Concord Pike will continue to be a safe, accessible, and economically thriving place for all.

The Wilmington Area Planning Council (WILMAPCO) is responsible for administering the Master Plan development project, which was started in Spring 2018. The Project Management Committee (PMC) will collaborate on developing the US 202 Corridor Master Plan, and will include WILMAPCO, the Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT), and the New Castle County Department of Land Use.
Also, in order to gain a greater understanding of the concerns of those who live, work, or pass through the Concord Pike (US 202) Corridor, an interactive Wiki Map has been created. Feedback will be used to develop recommendations that meet the needs of those in the corridor. Share your experience, please visit http://wikimapping.com/wi…/US-202-Corridor-Master-Plan.html…
