As a result of the recent WILMAPCO Council meeting we have had further internal discussions concerning how to provide additional traffic analysis that will help answer the community's questions regarding the impact of the Stoltz development proposals. My planning staff has provided me with the following suggested approach. We propose to take the traffic volumes from the Traffic Operational Analysis (TOA’s) and Traffic Impact Studies (TIS’s) for Barley Mill, Greenville Center, Columbia Gas Office Site and Shops at Brandywine Valley, add the extra volume to the regional travel demand forecasting model, and use the model to show the anticipated volumes on all the roads in the area around these developments with and without the proposed developments.
This would be supplemented information provided to New Castle County Council. DelDOT will continue to be a partner with New Castle County in order to assist in providing information needed by council for their deliberations. If you would like to discuss this further please let me know.
