Virginia Beach, Va. - A deadly stretch of road in Virginia Beach will soon see improvements.

City council voted to dedicate and spend extra money to fix Sandbridge Road.

Last month, four people including 3 children died on Sandbridge Road.

And weeks later, a semi flipped over there.

Locals have complained that its curvy design and varying speed limits are issues.

A measure to use funds to improve Sandbridge Road was included in the 2014/2015 city budget.

The budget passed 10 to 1.
