NORFOLK, VA – Construction is underway on Norfolk’s first SMART SCALE Project: Virginia Beach Boulevard Improvements at Newtown Road. The next phase of work begins this week where the westbound and eastbound travel lanes will reduce from two lanes to one wide lane in each direction. The lane reduction will occur during daytime hours. At the end of the day, lanes will be restored back to two 11-foot lanes. This phase should be complete this fall.
