Long-awaited Road Improvements on the Way



The Commonwealth Transportation Board awarded a key transportation project today in Virginia Beach that will help one of the most traffic-congested areas in the region. 

The $19 million improvement  will add lanes to Lynnhaven Parkway and construct a bridge over a canal located between Centerville Turnpike and Indian River Road.  The project, awarded to American Infrastructure Virginia, Inc., will improve traffic flow by building an additional lane in each direction of Lynnhaven Parkway and create a connection between Chesapeake and Virginia Beach.  After construction, Lynnhaven Parkway will be a continuous four-lane divided roadway.

"The Commonwealth is advancing critically needed transportation projects that will ease congestion and improve safety," said Governor McDonnell.  "These and numerous other projects will move traffic and commerce more efficiently, while also supporting jobs and benefiting the economy statewide."

CTB Chairman and Secretary of Transportation Sean T. Connaughton added, "The board is investing transportation dollars to rehabilitate Virginia's aging highways and bridges and increase capacity for traffic so you can get to your destination quicker."

Scott Taylor applauded the progress and pledges to make sure it is continued in the future.

"Investments like this are sorely needed in Virginia Beach, and our traffic congestion has been at an unacceptable level for a while," said Taylor.  "I applaud Governor McDonnell and Secretary Connaughton for their leadership.  Road improvements are key to growing business activity and job creation."

Expected project completion is fall 2016.
