St. Jones Greenway
St. Jones Greenway
The St. Jones River Greenway is a planned 14-mile long river-side pathway linking the Greater Dover, Central Kent County area to the Delaware Bay. The Greenway will connect isolated residential communities, the City of Dover and recreation areas along the St. Jones River. Kent County residents will have access to a pathway designed for pedestrians and bicyclists; providing a choice of a non-vehicular means of commuting to work, accessing services and visiting family and friends. The greenway will also offer recreational, natural resource, cultural, and educational experiences.
The 3-mile long Isaac Segment is a major step towards realizing the vision of the St. Jones River Greenway Commission. The Isaac Segment consists of two phases. Phase I begins here at the existing path and pedestrian bridge on Public Safety Boulevard, continues behind the Softball Field at the back of the DelDOT Campus, meanders through the woodland, passes under the SR1 Puncheon Run Connector Bridge, runs between the Connector and Capital Park to Bay Road, terminating at Presidents Drive. Phase II crosses Presidents Drive and continues south between the SR1 roadway and a major wetland creation site, terminating at Route 10 at a signalized intersection.
Funding for the project was made possible by the Kent County Levy Court, on behalf of The St. Jones Greenway Commission, The Delaware Department of Transportation, The Federal Highway Administration, The Delaware State Housing Authority, and the DNREC, Land & Water Conservation Trust Fund.
