Lynnhaven Parkway (UPC 14603 – VDOT Administered), project is currently under construction. This project will widen Lynnhaven Parkway from a 2-lane roadway to a 4-lane undivided roadway from Indian River Road to Centerville Turnpike, a distance of approximately 1.5 miles. This project will complete the connection between Chesapeake and Virginia Beach by bridging a canal located within the project limits. Construction began on 12/30/2013. The original fixed completion date was September 30, 2016. Due to numerous private utility conflicts with sound walls, drainage and new City utility installations also several design revisions the schedule had been pushed out approximately one year. Through negotiations VDOT is working hard to get beneficial use (lanes open through the corridor) by the end of 2016 and completion in Spring of 2017. Currently, the new schedule is tracking 25 days ahead for beneficial use. The north side of the project from Indian River Road to Albright Drive is complete except for surface asphalt. All signal poles and arms have been installed on the project. Contract item overruns, changes in the character of work and additional work have resulted in a revised project cost of approximately $43M.
