About the Project
This project calls for the construction of a four-lane divided roadway from Centerville Turnpike to Indian River Road. This is the final phase of the Lynnhaven Parkway projects and will provide a north-south link between Chesapeake and Virginia Beach. The current portion of Lynnhaven Parkway is primarily a two-lane road and there is no connection from Indian River Road to Centerville Turnpike. This project has been fully funded in the Governor’s Transportation Initiative.
During construction, one lane of traffic will be maintained in both directions. Motorists should be alert to temporary flagging operations as needed throughout the duration of the project.
Crews have completed clearing and grubbing for phase I and phase II of construction. Grading work is nearing completion between Beaufain Boulevard and the new proposed bridge. Test pile driving and cofferdam installation for the new bridge is scheduled to begin by mid-June.
The project is scheduled for completion in fall 2016.
