River to the Sea Bikeway Master Plan Draft

The River to the Sea Bikeway is collaboratively planned and managed by the City of Wilmington and Town of Wrightsville Beach.  New Hanover County and the Wilmington Metropolitan Planning Organization (WMPO) also participate in the planning of facilities and events to promote the bikeway.  The purpose of this plan is to guide further development of the bikeway.  The adoption of this plan will show citizen support for future development and will strengthen grant applications to assist with funding future sections of the bikeway.  This plan is currently in draft mode and is being considered by WMPO committees. Thank you for your participation.
