Eli Cooper, the assistant direc- tor for intermodal programs for Delaware's Department of Trans- portation (DeIDOT) said DelDOT plans to return for another series of meetings on ways to improve the Route 1 corridor. The issue was hotly discussed last year with a series of suggestions rangirig from additional lanes to bike routes, improved intersections and alternative entrances to the city of Rehoboth Beach discussed. Cooper said that he hopes to have a public meeting scheduled soon, with a possible date in early December. It will be the first of Late obituaries John M.

Jim Alderman, restoration coor- dinator for the CIB, called the event "a huge success" and said the community response and turnout was such that next year's Splash '99 will probably be held in the Baycenter to accommodate more people. "It was a great event with a great turnout," Alderman com- mented. "The function was to several public meetings on ways to improve Route 1. For now, he said DelDOT is focusing on sev- eral key possible components. But no final decisions have been made. Here are key components being considered by DelDOT: Alternative entrance to Re- hoboth Beach. No single element of last year's discussion provoked more conversation and more con- cern from Rehoboth Beach. The proposed new entrance would be located below the bridge over the Lewes-Rehoboth Canal as Route 1 runs southward toward Dewey Beach. That entrance would be lo- cated immediately along the canal bank. But in a major change from last year, Cooper said that DelDOT is looking at an alterna- Seaford; and four stepdaughters.
