Project at a Glance
Partially funded in SYIP 2013; Preliminary Engineering Phase funded only
The widening of Military Highway in Norfolk was originally slated to be a three-phased project encompassing a mile and a half of total roadway. The project calls for improvements to the southern section of Military Highway from Lowery Road to Broad Creek, from Broad Creek to the Norfolk Southern Railroad tracks and the northern section of Military Highway near I-64 and Robin Hood Road.
What is a Continuous Flow Intersection?
A Continuous flow Intersection (CFI), is an at-grade intersection that moves the turning vehicles, conflicting with the through-movements, out of the main intersection. Specifically, a CFI moves the left turning traffic down the road several hundred feet, eliminating the left-turn traffic signal phase during the signal cycle of the cross-traffic.
Project Updates as of January 2013
Right-of-Way Acquisition is scheduled for completion by May 2013, for Military Highway and Lowery Drive. An informal meeting was held in early January 2013 with local civic leagues in Norfolk to update their members on the project. Upon completion of preliminary design, a Citizen Information Meeting (CIM) will be held in late spring 2013. The release for the Design Build RFQ is scheduled to be advertised in fall 2014; with the RFP to subsequently follow in spring 2015.
