Road Work on First Colonial to Begin This Sunday, March 10th

Thursday, March 07, 2019

Virginia Beach Public Works has announced that roadwork improvements on First Colonial Road will begin on Sunday, March 10, 2019, from Donna Drive to Wisconsin Avenue.

The work will be in both the northbound and southbound lanes, and will begin 375 feet north of Wisconsin Avenue to 250 feet past the I-264 over pass.  It will include both northbound and southbound lanes, turn lanes, and the ramps.

The work will be from 9 p.m. until 5 a.m. each evening, and will include milling, paving and pavement marking improvements.  The milling and paving operation is likely to produce traffic delays, congestion and some construction noise.  Advanced warning signs will be clearly posted advising motorists of lane closures.

Citizens are urged to use alternate traffic routes when possible.

All scheduled work is weather permitting, and is expected to be completed by Wednesday, March 13.

Virginia Paving is the contractor.
