Military, Northampton Intersection Improvement Planned

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.

  1. I just moved out here from Salt Lake City, Utah and UDOT put Continuous Flow Intersections in 10 years ago. They work very well! It takes some time to get used to navigating them but, well worth the money!
