Study examines feasibility of water trasnsportation between Lewes and Rehoboth

    Pending a traffic study, funding and construction time, two waterfront towns in Delaware could soon be linked by waterway transit.

    Already connected by a highway and a greenway, Lewes and Rehoboth, which share a canal, have the potential to link up on the water, creating a more eco-friendly mode of transportation and alleviating some of the road congestion between the two.


    The Wilmington News Journal reports a $25,000 grant-funded study will determine the project’s feasibility and costs as officials dream big about things like solar powered pontoon boats and docking locations.

    Members of the Lewes-Rehoboth Canal Improvement Association will meet again next month.
