The purpose of the North Bethany Bicycle and Pedestrian Corridor Study is to evaluate alternatives to provide low-stress bicycle and pedestrian facilities along SR 1 between Bethany Beach and the Indian River Inlet Bridge, and to develop a conceptual design and cost estimate for a recommended alternative. These concepts will be developed based on the public feedback received to date and the results of the existing conditions assessment. The potential alternatives may include recommendations for traffic calming, median crossover closures/consolidations, shared use path(s), protected bike lanes, dedicated right-turn lanes, sidewalks, and crossing improvements.

US Wind has provided the Delaware A.C.T with a package of community benefits regarding the wind turbine projects for Coastal Delaware residents of Henlopen Acres, Rehoboth Beach, Dewey Beach, Bethany Beach, and South Bethany.  Fenwick Island Mayor Natalie Magdeburger issued a statement in which the Town "declined to be involved with hiring a consultant to negotiate a community benefits package with the wind farm companies."
