Trail network to extend to Rehoboth Beach in Delaware

REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. (AP) — Crews will begin work Monday to extend a popular trail network for pedestrians and bicyclists to Rehoboth Beach.

The Delaware Department of Transportation said the $513,000 project will extend the existing Junction and Breakwater Trail network into the City of Rehoboth.

The current trail follows a section of the old Penn Central railroad to connect Lewes to West Rehoboth.

The extension includes a 10-foot wide asphalt trail in parts as well as a two-way bicycle lane to Grove Park, which is just a few blocks from the beach itself.

The department expects work to be completed by Memorial Day.
