RUMOR: Is There Any End in Sight to the Feeder Roads on Laskin Road?

FACT: The end is near! For the feeder roads, that is. Improvements on Laskin Road are set to begin in the late spring or early summer of 2019 to remove the feeder lanes between Republic and Oriole Roads. The combined $78 million project is shared between the City of Virginia Beach and the Virginia Department of Transportation.​​
FIRST COLONIAL, LASKIN RD INTERSECTIONThe feeder roads have been a source of frustration to our residents and visitors alike when driving through the area. Removing them has been on the road improvement project list since the 1990s, however other projects, such as Nimmo Parkway, Lynnhaven Parkway and Witchduck Road, have taken priority. After securing state funding, the project began in 2019. 

The project will remove the feeder lanes and turn Laskin Road into a six to eight lane divided highway between Republic and Oriole Roads. Future projects are planned (when funding is available) along Laskin Road that will continue to remove the feeder lanes and turn it into a wider divided highway.
