Help is on the way for Norfolk commuters who get stuck in the high-traffic intersection at Military Highway and Northampton Blvd.
The Commonwealth Transportation Board awarded a contract to install a “continuous-flow intersection” at U.S. 13, Route 165 and Route 166 (Military Highway, Northampton Boulevard and Princess Anne Road.)
The continuous-flow intersection will direct vehicles turning left from Military Highway either to Princess Anne Road or Northampton Boulevard away from the main intersection.
V-DOT says this new configuration will increase safety and reduce congestion by eliminating that left turn.
The project should be completed in May 2018.
The contract is worth around $59.8 million and it went to Corman-E.V. Williams of Virginia Beach.
