I have gradually come to the conclusion that a road diet on Route 1 is likely the right solution here. Less than half a mile to the south of that potential trail crossing, southbound Route 1 narrows to a single lane just before merging with two lanes from I-95. If you move the merge down to a single lane to just north of the crossing, and turn the left lanes of route 1 at the crossing into island space for cyclists, and narrow the single travel lanes to 10' at the crossing, and set a suitably slow speed limit on Route 1 at the crossing, and perhaps add flashing lights that bicyclists can hit a button to activate, the crossing will probably work out OK.
