About the Project:
The primary purpose of this project is to widen Laskin Road and replace the bridge over Linkhorn Bay in the city of Virginia Beach. The two phases of this project are as follows:
This project phase will replace the existing bridge on Laskin Road (Route 58) located 1 mile east of First Colonial Road. The Laskin Road Bridge crosses Linkhorn Bay in the Hilltop area. The current bridge was built in 1938, was later widened in 1956 and is in overall fair condition.
The limits of construction for this project are from the existing bridge to Red Robin Road and will connect to the Phase 1A project to the west.
Laskin Road within the Phase 1 project limits will be widened to six lanes (two 12-foot lanes and one 14-foot outside lane to accommodate bikes in each direction) with a 5-foot sidewalk on the south, a 10-foot shared-use path on the north.
This project includes construction of an 8-lane divided highway (two 12-foot through lanes and one 14-foot wide outside lane to accommodate bikes in each direction and a continuous right turn lane in each direction) with a 5-foot sidewalk on the south, a 10-foot shared-use path on the north.
The limits of construction for this project are from Republic Road to the existing Linkhorn Bay bridge and will connect to the Phase 1 project to the east.
This phase also includes full improvements to the Laskin Road/First Colonial Road intersection as well as construction of a 6-lane divided highway on First Colonial Road from Laurel Lane to I-264.
A design public hearing will be taking place on December 14, 2017, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., at First Colonial High School (1272 Mill Dam Rd, Virginia Beach, VA 23454).
