Delaware County asked the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commision (DVRPC) to propose recommendations to increase access to the county’s trails network through on-road bicycle facilities. This memo explores the project team’s on-road bicycle network methodology in connecting adjacent low-stress, typically residential islands to selected trailheads. A complementary webmap further depicts the proposed designs and phasing.
