Delaware’s main center of transportation and commerce, the port of Wilmington, lies on the Christina River near its junction with the Delaware. Wilmington serves large oceangoing vessels and carries on an extensive trade through its municipal marine terminal with New York City and other U.S. ports and with foreign ports. Wilmington is the largest port-of-discharge for bananas in the world. The port is also important in both import and export of automobiles. The chief commercial waterways are the Delaware River, Delaware Bay, and the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal.

Roads


By 2007 Delaware had 10,046 km (6,242 mi) of public roads, of which 66 km (41 mi) were part of the national interstate highway system. Wilmington is the focal point of several major federal highways. The Delaware Memorial Bridge, which spans the Delaware River near Wilmington, was opened in 1951. Traffic volume grew so heavy (the bridge connects the Delaware and New Jersey turnpikes) that a second, twin span was opened in 1968. A ferry offers year-round service between Lewes, Delaware, and Cape May, New Jersey. Delaware was served by 367 km (228 mi) of railroads in 2004. Some 35 percent of the tonnage of goods shipped by rail and originating in the state was chemicals. Commuter rail service is provided from Wilmington to downtown Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Airports


In 2009 Delaware had 2 airports, some of which were private airfields. The principal airport was the Greater Wilmington Airport, although it was not busy by national standards. The Wilmington area also is served by a major airport in Philadelphia. Dover Air Force Base is one of the most important military air terminals on the East Coast.
