Lewes Bike Plan
Lewes Bike Plan
The Lewes Bike Plan seeks to create a community that encourages walking and bicycling for fun, errands, and commuting. All who live, work, or visit Lewes should have access to a biccycle and pedestrian network that is safe and comfortable for all ages and abilities, is clearly identified, and provides amenities throughoout its use. This network will provide connections to popular destinations within and outside of town limits, resulting in a thriving, healthy community.

Adequate and secure bicycle parking and pedestrian amenities at all major trip destinations, including but not limited to all City parks.
Ensure safety for pedestrians and bicyclists is incorporated into all discussions related to the design, maintenance, or enforcement of all City & State maintained roads.
Through collaboration with DelDOT, prioritize projects to promote safe & friendly biking.
Bicyclist and pedestrian well-being and safety shall be a cooperative undertaking.
All aspects of City government, including its committees, committed to prioritizing bicycle and pedestrian safety initiatives in their work.
Continuously improve bike and pedestrian safety through educational programs.
Adopt community engagement strategies to monitor use of pedestrian and bicycle facilities.
