NORFOLK, Va. – The Military Highway lane reduction project is scheduled to end on Wednesday.
The reduction is a week and a half ahead of schedule and will reopen to two lanes in each direction by 5 a.m.
Crews have been working on a railroad crossing replacement for the Military Highway Continuous Flow Intersection project.
Traffic will be stopped Tuesday night from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. to prepare for the traffic to switch back to the regular roadway.
Some commuters have had concerns over the project as lanes have been closed.
The project cost $59.8 million, according to the City of Norfolk.
It combines the addition of new lanes, new signals, and a new continuous flow intersection that will increase capacity in the corridor.
Project construction will be ongoing, but two lanes in each direction will remain open during peak travel times.
