The West Ocean View Avenue flyover at Tidewater Drive will close on July 15, 2020. An at-grade, signalized intersection will replace the flyover bridge, which is in poor structural condition and would require significant rehabilitation or reconstruction to extend its service life.
The new intersection design will improve safety, pedestrian and bicycle accessibility, and context sensitivity. In the new configuration, eastbound West Ocean View Avenue traffic between 4th View Street and Mason Creek Road will pass straight through the new signalized intersection with Tidewater Drive. Separation will be maintained between Tidewater Drive traffic to 4th View Street and westbound West Ocean View Avenue traffic to Willoughby Spit.
Demolition of the West Ocean View Avenue flyover at Tidewater Drive is tentatively scheduled to take place Tuesday, July 21 through Sunday, July 26, 2020. For more information, visit https://www.norfolk.gov/4781/W-Ocean-View-Ave-Tidewater-Dr-Project.
