Editor's Note: This work, originally scheduled for May 31, has been postponed to June 7. The traffic alert below has been updated to reflect this change.
VIRGINIA BEACH - On Sunday, June 7 , contractor crews with the Virginia Department of Transportation will begin temporary signal installation at the intersection of Laskin Road and First Colonial Road.

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