The warm weather is here, and with it will come increased traffic in and around Cape Charles. One of the main concerns is golf cart traffic, especially those using carts on Stone Road on their way to the Cape Charles Brewery. While the speed limit is 25 mph in town, it changes to 55 before reaching the brewery.
In 2017, the Town had VDOT conduct a traffic study to see whether reducing the speed limit to 25 mph leaving town all the way to the Brewery was warranted. The study, conducted in 2018 found that a speed reduction in that zone was not warranted.
The Town has once again taken up the issue and has reviewed the traffic study again. They have decided to make another request of VDOT to again consider a speed reduction in this area. A new resolution was drafted for the April 15 regular council meeting.
Staff continues to work with Cape Charles Main Street to develop a golf cart path solution.
