Linking the Delaware River to the Chesapeake BayNew Castle has a long history as a national transportation link. In the 1820s a turnpike connected ships on the Delaware River with ships on the Chesapeake Bay. However, the turnpike was in poor condition. Progressive town leaders saw possibilities in a new technology.
