We need your input! Safety on Route 13….Food Lion/Cape Charles Intersection
VDOT recently held a hearing on changes proposed at the Food Lion entrance and Cape Charles/Cheriton intersection. Thanks to all who came out. It was a good discussion, but it would be great to get more feedback about the proposed changes
The VDOT Proposal includes:…
Make turn lanes wider and longer in following locations
• Stone Road, northbound and southbound into Cape Charles
• S. Bayside Road, northbound and southbound into Cheriton
• Northbound and southbound into Food Lion
• Into the group of businesses across from Food Lion, southbound
• Into Dollar General, northbound
An alternative solution, and in my opinion, the better and safer solution:
• Add new road from Food Lion/Dollar General onto South Bayside Road. Most traffic would exit on this road. You could still go out of the current Food Lion exit to go northbound. You would not be allowed to exit out of Food Lion going southbound. The crossover at the current Food Lion intersection would be closed to all traffic. The land for this option is already owned by the state (see photo)
• Lengthen and widen the turn lanes at the Stone Road/S. Bayside (Cape Charles/Cheriton) intersection, northbound and southbound
• Reduce the speed limit from Bayview Circle (Corner Mart) to Hardee’s to 45 miles per hour
