Welsh Tract
The Welsh Tract, also called the Welsh Barony, was a portion of the U.S. state of Pennsylvania settled largely by Welsh-speaking Quakers. It covers 40,000 acres (160 km²) to the west of Philadelphia. The original settlers, led by John Roberts, negotiated with William Penn in 1684 to constitute the Tract as a separate county whose local government would use the Welsh language, since many of the settlers spoke no English. Notwithstanding this agreement, by the 1690s the land had already been partitioned into different counties, despite appeals from the Welsh settlers, and the Tract never gained self-government.

Crossing I95 in the Newark area: Welsh Tract Road - Blogs - Middletown Transcript
View Larger MapThe 2nd of an eight part series, we are examining every I95 overpass/underpass in the greater Newark area from a bicycling safety perspective. Crossing I95 is a major impediment for City and area bicyclists, and a show stopper for many who might otherwise consider commuting or riding for basic transportation. Of the eight, we already know the following:2 are equipped with a truly safe, segregated pathway intended for non-motorized use - but are not necessarily safe to reach on a bike.2 contain access ramps to and from I95 in both directions, rendering them totally unsafe.6 are direct crossings with no I95 access, but contain little or no bikeable shoulder space.By request of Delaware Bikes Advocates, 4 are under consideration for Bicycle Warning Signs.The Welsh Tract Road I95 overpass is just west of Route 896. Despite added hills, many bicyclists use this to circumvent the Route 896 (College Avenue) clover leaf. Mountain bicyclists also frequent the area, and use Welsh Tract as a connector between Newark and Iron Hill Park. This is easily the least congested and shortest of the I95 crossings, and features a reasonably clean 3' shoulder. 6-10'' of shoulder opens up in both directions immediately before and after the span. Despite all the advantages above, however, most of Welsh Tract Road itself ranges from non-shouldered to intermittent shoulders at best.Tips for crossing I95 on Welsh Tract Road:In the interest of safety, and for peace of mind, always use a rear-view mirror to monitor overtaking traffic.Wear a safety vest, and/or mount a reflective triangle to your rear rack bag or back pack, if you have one.This is not an arterial road, and speed limits range from 35 to 40 mph. Generally, you can safely maintain your position within or just outside of the shoulder while crossing this span. If this I95 crossing is too intimidating, slow down and stop before the shoulder narrows. Wait for a comfortable break in traffic before charging across the span. If timed right, it is possible to clear the overpass with few or no cars overtaking. A view of the span heading east toward Newark.Welsh Tract is a common detour around the Route 896/College Ave cloverleaf, as illustrated above. It adds a significant climb over Iron Hill via Whittaker Road, tempting cyclists to stay the course and tough it out on 896.
