Dominion Boulevard final bridge span opening

CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) – The final two spans on Dominion Boulevard at Cedar Road and the Veterans Bridge are scheduled to open this week.

Both southbound lanes on Dominion Boulevard between Great Bridge Boulevard and Grassfield Parkway are now open. Crews are still working to get both northbound lanes open, but this is not expected to happen until late Tuesday or early Wednesday.

In addition to opening the spans, crews will reconfigure ramps and traffic signals for the final layout.

The multi-use path on the southbound span of the Veterans Bridge will not be open for another 1 to 2 weeks, according to the Chesapeake Department of Public Works.

Once all four lanes are open, a toll system testing period of approximately 30 days will begin. No tolls will be collected during this time. The tolling start date will be announced once the testing period is almost over.
