Each month, HRTPO staff will highlight a project that is currently being implemented within the Hampton Roads region. This month, staff is highlighting the Westhaven Bicycle Improvements project located in the City of Portsmouth. It is a bicycle and pedestrian project which will construct bike lanes and a multi-use path to connect existing bicycle lanes on Clifford Street and Airline Boulevard. The project will begin near the Clifford Street/Powhatan Avenue intersection and end at the Airline Boulevard/Bart Street intersection.
The cost estimate for the project is approximately $410,000 and to-date, $66,700 has been expended on the project’s Preliminary Engineering (PE) phase. Construction is due to start in May 2022, with completion of the project in September 2023.
