About the Project
The current portion of Lynnhaven Parkway is primarily a two-lane road with a connection from Indian River Road to Centerville Turnpike. This project will complete that connection with the construction of a four-lane divided roadway. This is the final phase of the Lynnhaven Parkway corridor projects, which will make a connection from Volvo Parkway at Battlefield Boulevard to I-264 at the Lynnhaven Parkway interchange.
When complete, the project will include a bridge over Brigadoon Lake #2, an 8-foot shared use path, a sidewalk, sound walls and landscaping. New traffic signals will be installed at the intersections of Monument Drive, Heald Way, Beaufain Boulevard and Albright Drive.
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.
The bridge superstructure and structural sound wall is nearly complete, with only the median brick paving remaining to be done. Ground-mounted sound wall, water, sewer, storm drain and underground signal installation is ongoing. On the newly-constructed westbound side of Lynnhaven Parkway between Albright Drive and Middlebrook Lane, sidewalk, curb and gutter have been installed and asphalt paving is underway.
Due to construction, Brigadoon Neighborhood Park is closed. The park is expected to reopen to the public in late summer 2016.
The project is scheduled for completion in spring 2017.
A Community Information Meeting was held on Thursday, Nov. 12, 2016, at Tallwood High School to give residents a brief presentation on the progress of the project:
Virginia Beach Public Works has announced the closure of Lynnhaven Parkway between Albright Drive and Dalrymple Street beginning on Tuesday, Feb 2, 2016, at 9 a.m. This closure will remain in effect into September 2016.
Crews will be reconstructing this portion of Lynnhaven Parkway during the closure. Work includes the installation of waterline, sanitary and storm sewers, soundwalls, embankment, curbs, sidewalks and pavement.
Signs for the detour route will be posted which will direct drivers, although the detour routing will vary as construction progresses. Access to nearby residences on will be maintained at all times.
