Five Points Resurfacing Project

Upcoming traffic pattern changes

NORFOLK, VA – Chesapeake Boulevard between Hyde Circle and Green Street, including the Five Points intersection is scheduled for resurfacing. This project will reconstruct the concrete intersection with an asphalt surface. Curbs and gutters will be replaced for better storm water mitigation and   pedestrian safety enhancements, including ADA ramps. Construction will begin Sunday, November 7, and is scheduled for completion mid-2022. 

Work will be performed Sunday through Thursday nights from 6:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. Alternating lane closures and traffic shifts will remain in place daily. Additionally, motorists should expect intermittent traffic stoppages and are encouraged to use alternate routes such as Military Highway, Little Creek Road, and Princess Anne Road when possible. Message signs will be posted at least one week before construction starts and alternate routes will be posted throughout the project. Access to residences and businesses will be maintained. Trash and recycling services will continue as normal.
