Thursday, the Town of Cape Charles signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with Northampton County and Canonie Atlantic, undertaking an ANPDC funding application for work associated with Phase IV of the Southern Tip Bike and Hike Trail.
The agreement is an extension of the trail approximately 900 feet south along the west side of Route 13 to where the new traffic light will be installed to enter the Food Lion shopping center.
This change was considered a safety upgrade to avoid the high volume of traffic already occurring at Routes 13 and 184.
At this time, there is no cost estimate.
As part of the agreement, the town commits to maintaining this portion of the trail for the entirety of its lifespan.
