Mount Pleasant Road at Great Bridge Bypass Interchange Improvements

Project Description:

This project funds the reconstruction of the Chesapeake Expressway (Route 168) to facilitate better traffic flow and ease congestion along Mt Pleasant Road. This project will also provide the needed interchange/ramp improvements to support the future widening of Mt. pleasant Road to a four-lane divided highway. The cross-section through the project area will include two through travel lanes in each direction, an eastbound displaced left turn lane, a westbound conventional left turn lane, bicycle lanes (6ft wide) in each direction, and sidewalks (5ft wide) on both sides of the roadway. A new traffic signal will also be installed at the location where the displaced left turn crosses the opposing through lanes.
