TERMINAL BOULEVARD RESURFACING FINISHES AHEAD OF SCHEDULE
Project provides smooth ride between I-564 and Hampton Boulevard
Terminal Boulevard in Norfolk following its resurfacing.
NORFOLK — The Terminal Boulevard Resurfacing Project was completed on November 18, nearly two months ahead of the original contract date of January 13, 2017.
The project repaired a major thoroughfare to the Port of Virginia’s Norfolk International Terminals and Naval Support Activity Hampton Roads.
Virginia Paving began construction on the $5 million project in June. It resurfaced a 2-mile stretch of Terminal Boulevard, between Hampton Boulevard and Interstate 564, with a 6-inch layer of asphalt. First, the contractor broke up the road’s old concrete pavement and used the aggregate as a base for the new roadway. That process, known as rubblization, prevents cracking in old pavement from affecting the new asphalt.
The project also resurfaced the I-564 off-ramp to Terminal Boulevard west and featured a number of other improvements, including new curbs, gutters and guardrails, and the replacement of damaged stormwater pipes.
