CHESAPEAKE, Va. - The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is looking for public feedback for improvements that can be made near the Chesapeake Expressway.

They said the input will help with a transportation study that is assessing potential operational and safety improvements for a corridor segment of Battlefield Boulevard at the Route 168 Bypass (Chesapeake Expressway) interchange, as well as between Gainsborough Square and the intersection of Kempsville Road/Great Bridge Boulevard in Chesapeake.

“The study will identify and analyze traffic operations and safety issues along this corridor, its intersections, and the Route 168 Bypass interchange, with a focus on providing congestion mitigation, as well as enhanced pedestrian, bicycle and transit access,” VDOT said.
