TRAFFIC STOPPAGES, LANE CLOSURES SCHEDULED ON LASKIN ROAD PROJECT FOR TEMPORARY SIGNAL INSTALLATION
VIRGINIA BEACH - On Sunday, July 12 , contractor crews with the Virginia Department of Transportation will work on temporary signal installation at the intersection of Laskin Road and First Colonial Road.

This work, part of the Laskin Road Bridge Replacement and Widening Project , will require brief, temporary traffic stoppages at the intersection on July 12 as early as 7 a.m. During these temporary stoppages, motorists should follow the direction of law enforcement and be mindful of crews working alongside the roadway.

The temporary traffic signal, once installed, will be operational during utility work that will affect the existing traffic signal poles.

Lane closures on Laskin Road in this location can be in place Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. as work on the temporary signal installation continues. Single-lane closures on First Colonial Road can be in place Monday through Friday, from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Motorists should obey the posted speed limit at all times.
