Virginia Beach, Va. (WTKR) - The final phase of a construction project to improve the intersection where Princess Anne, Kempsville and Witchduck Roads meet is set to begin this weekend.

The project is upgrading the intersection so that each segment has three through lanes, two left-hand turn lanes and a free flowing right-hand turn lane.

Over the weekend, southbound traffic on Witchduck Road, which turns into Kempsville Road, will be shifted to the east side of the road.

That shift will happen between Bonney Road and Chief Trail.

Two roads, Office Square Lane and Singleton Way at Witchduck Road, will be closed during this shift. Businesses there can be accessed using Ruritan Court, according to Virginia Beach Public Works.

Project Manager Bill Haggerty says when construction is completed next spring, the entire corridor will be poised to meet the needs of a growing population.

"This intersection project adjusts for and improves the existing conditions at the intersection plus also adds capacity for future growth," Haggerty stated.
