Cape Charles has applied for a grant from the Virginia Municipal League risk management pool for a speed sign. While many locations could benefit, the sign is planned to go on Randolph Avenue.
The Radarsign is an electronic speed monitoring sign with an LED display. The model chosen is solar-powered and mounts on a breakaway-base pole. The sign will have the ability to post optional safety alerts.
It is Wi-Fi enabled to allow monitoring from any web-enabled device and also comes with a traffic data software license.
The Town hopes to find out about the grant award in about 60 days. After the grant has been awarded, they have 90 days to make the purchase and submit receipts to close out the grant.
The cost of the sign is $4,350.00.
