From Google streetview it looks like the posted limit on the hill is 40mph. The coefficient of drag should be nearly identical at 40mph and 80mph, but you're right that it might be more difficult to suss out the impact of wind vs rolling resistance from coast down testing.

But with care, you should be able to make crude improvements which would allow you to more productively focus subsequent high speed testing later.
