Shore Drive speed reduction survey. (Survey has been CLOSED)

Thank you to the 700 residents who took the time to answer the survey questions.  The results are being compiled and will be posted soon.

Your input is desperately needed.

The following survey is being sponsored by the Cape Story by the Sea Civic Association (CSBTS), Cape Henry Shores Civic Association (CHSCA)and Shore Drive Community Coalition (SDCC). The survey will be used to help determine the effectiveness of the temporary speed limit reduction from 45 mph to 35 mph along Shore Drive between Great Neck Road and First Landing State Park.

Local residents and civic leagues have repeatedly requested the City over the past 5 years to reduce the speed on this stretch of road. The reduced speed will help improve safety for the 800 residents of Cape Story by the Sea and Cape Henry Shores that cross Shore Drive on foot and by vehicle without the aid of signalized intersections or marked crosswalks. A reduced speed limit will also make the road safer for Type-A bicyclists that voted this roadway as their number one most traveled route in Virginia Beach (Virginia Beach Bikes and Trails Plan 2004) by a 2 to 1 margin over the second most popular route in the City.
