Open Streets Coming To Highlands

Open Streets Wilmington is coming to the Highlands!

Join us on Delaware Avenue between Scott Street and Brinckle Avenue Saturday, September 18 from 9a-12p for the neighborhood’s first Open Streets.

Open Streets create a safe, car-free environment for residents of all ages and abilities to enjoy time outside walking, biking, and more. Delaware Avenue will be closed off to vehicular traffic for this special day so residents can enjoy a healthy slate of activities, including:

And be sure to say hi to your friends from Highlands Community Association at the corner of Delaware Avenue & Rockford Road!

If you live along an Open Streets route, your street will be closed to traffic during the event. You will want to relocate your vehicle from on-street parking before the street closure goes into effect. Please contact event organizers with any questions.

Open Streets Wilmington is a collaborative initiative of Urban Bike Project, West Side Grows Together, and the Open Streets Steering Committee, a coalition of community representatives. Open Streets Wilmington is also presented by HighMark Blue Cross Blue Shield Delaware through their grant fund Blueprints for the Community
