The Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge, Assateague Island National Seashore, Town of Chincoteague, and Accomack County worked with the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Volpe Center on an alternative transportation study. The study, which took about a year to complete, aimed to objectively analyze different ways to address transportation problems -- including beach access, traffic, and parking. The research study was informed by ideas and comments from the public, as well as analysis of data and information about traffic, transportation, and other factors. This alternative transportation plan was finalized in April 2010.
