The Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) conducted a public meeting on October 26, 2022 to address pedestrian and bicyclist safety concerns along Coastal Highway in North Bethany.  The results of a recent DelDOT traffic study were presented and representatives from the "Coalition for a Safer North Bethany Beach" were given the opportunity to voice their concerns particularly, the posted speed limit of 55 mph.

Several short-term strategies under consideration include improving signage, increasing site-distance by removing overgrown vegetation, installing flashing beacons, and improving road crossings and lighting.  Additional longer-term ideas were presented such as creating buffers between travel lanes and the road shoulder, installing median barriers and creating a shared-use pathway along the east side of the road.
