Virginia Beach, Virginia (WAVY) — People traveling to Virginia Beach can be affected by changes in traffic on Laskin Road starting February 25 at the earliest.
According to VDOT officials, the contractor’s crew will make a series of traffic shifts on Ruskin Road near the bridge over Linkhorn Bay, enabling ongoing utility work.
Work is only part Ruskin Road Bridge Replacement and Widening Project..
The crew will install a total of 3.8 miles of new rainwater drains, 3.1 miles of sanitary drains, and 4.5 miles of domestic water pipes underground. Utility updates are expected to improve rainwater management, drainage and sewage systems.
Each traffic shift opens a space within the median of Ruskin Road so that the crew can work safely.
Perhaps the first traffic shift, starting February 25, will take place on Ruskin Road (towards the oceanfront) to the east, just east of the bridge. Both lanes on Laskin Road to the east will be shifted approximately 25 feet to the right, and traffic will return to the existing alignment just before the Red Robin Road intersection.
The second traffic shift affects the westbound Ruskin Road (towards Hilltop), just west of the bridge. The shift may start as early as March 4th.
Barriers, flexible delineators, and signs will be installed to guide traffic through the shift.
