The Senate Resolution 10 special truck traffic committee will hold its next meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 8, 6 p.m., at William Cooke Elementary School, 2025 Graves Rd, Hockessin.
The 11-member committee was created by SR10, which mandates the formation of the committee to study and make recommendations regarding truck traffic movement along Routes 41, 48, and 7 (Lancaster Pike, Newport-Gap Pike, and Limestone Road).
The resolution was put forth last winter following the addition – and subsequent removal – of signs by DelDOT directing all truck traffic destined for I-95 to take Route 48, sparking a reaction and a petition from residents protesting the move.
Members of the committee include employees of the Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOt), the Wilmington Area Planning Council (WILMAPCO), the Delaware State Police, the Wilmington Port Authority, and six residents from along the three routes.
This is the sixth committee meeting, with the next meeting scheduled on Wednesday, Nov. 29, 6 p.m., also at Cooke Elementary .
The committee’s recommendation is due on Jan. 12, 2017.
