Delaware town announces major intersection changes as part of their Rivertown Rebirth Plan 2025.
The City of Milford has announced upcoming downtown intersection changes.
Due to a weight restriction and upcoming improvements on the SW Front St. bridge, the City of Milford and DelDOT are working together to allow two-way traffic on SW Front St. to better service the business community on that street. In order to accomplish this change, the traffic signals at SE/SW Front St. and S. Walnut St. and Causey Ave. and S. Walnut St. will change to flashing red with new stop signs to signalize a four-way stop at both intersections. These changes will take effect in the next 45 days.
Along with these downtown intersection changes, the Milford Public Works Dept. is working to bring all signalized intersections in the downtown area up to DelDOT standards. These changes will not impact traffic patterns as most will be technology, ADA, and/or electrical upgrades. Once these upgrades are completed, the City of Milford will transfer ownership of all downtown traffic signals to DelDOT.
The City of Milford was founded in 1807 as a shipbuilding town. Officials have a vision that draws on the heritage of the Mispillion River and carry’s that rich history forward.

Great Hiking Trails Close To Wilmington
Great hiking trails close to Wilmington and I want to tell you about a few of my favorites!
Both my wife and I, along with you, were stuck at home in the early Covid months of 2020.
As you know, everything was shut down and there was not much anyone could do. Everything was closed!
But you know what was open? The great outdoors! We filled many days during that time with hikes close to home. Most of our hikes were in New Castle and Delaware Counties, and we made the drive down Route 1 to the Conowingo Dam in Maryland to do some hiking there.
For as long as we’ve been married my wife and I have been avid hikers. When the kids were very young, we would have them up in backpacks. As they got older we went on very short hikes, that turned into much longer hikes by the time they were teens and young adults.
We’ve had many great hikes in our region, up in the PA Endless Mountains and in New England.
But when Covid hit, the kids were long moved out and it was just the two of us. There was noting to do! Well, we did do plenty of yard work, until there was no more yard work to do! There was no traveling–so we rediscovered our local hiking trails.
Some of the great hiking trails close to Wilmington are challenging, but most are rather easy and family friendly.
Below I share some thoughts on great hiking trails close to Wilmington, info on how to locate them and some photos I took along the way!
So, fill up your water bottles and put some lunch and snacks into your backpack, and hit the trails!
