2011 Bikeways & Trails Plan Complete
The citizens of Virginia Beach have shown and stated consistently over the years that they want to be able to bike and walk around the City, both for recreation and for transportation alternatives.
Virginia Beach's 2009 Comprehensive Plan and its Master Transportation Plan respond to these desires generally, and this new 2011 Bikeways and Trails Plan responds to them specifically, pointing the way towards an enhanced system of bikeways and trails, plus the programs and other initiatives that support their use.
City Council adopted this plan as a component of the Comprehensive Plan in April 2011. You can view the plan online. Printed copies will become available at libraries in June 2011 and will be available for purchase at the Planning Department for $25.
