2020 Color Tour of Kent County

2020 Color Tour of Kent County

Sep 10, 2020 Press Releases

Kent County Road Commission celebrates fall by sharing its annual Color Tour. Every week, a new route has been introduced, with the final two routes unveiled on October 9, just in time for the estimated "peak" date for fall colors in Kent County, October 12. Routes can be driven individually for shorter trips or connected for longer outings.

The five routes guide motorists, cyclists and other travelers along county roads showcasing picturesque seasonal scenes.  Along the way, travelers can enjoy Kent County and township parks, each with its own unique character and recreational opportunities.

This year's routes are being designed to avoid active road improvement projects. Drivers are reminded to stay alert for work zones and obey caution signs.

Also, fall colors equates to fall harvest. When driving through agricultural areas, drivers must exercise caution, stay alert and remember that farm vehicles moving from field to field cannot turn and brake as easily as passenger vehicles. Slow down, be patient and enjoy a leisurely drive!
