The city is considering transportation alternatives for visitors to reach Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge. Please review proposed solutions and share suggestions for additional transportation options.
The City of Virginia Beach is the recipient of a $449,000 grant from the Federal Transit Administration (part of the Department of Transportation) to study transportation alternatives for visitors to reach Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge (BBNWR) without using private motor vehicles. Transportation alternatives can include providing trams from populated areas of the city to the refuge, construction of a shared-use path for biking and walking, and development of canoe/kayak facilities.
Spearheaded by Virginia Beach Parks & Recreation, this study offers the opportunity for citizens to explore potential transportation alternatives, learn the steps in the study process, review maps of the study area, and share suggestions for additional transportation options.
