Project Description

This project provides for infrastructure improvements at the intersection of Nansemond Parkway and Sleepy Hole Road adjacent to Nansemond River High School. Proposed roadway improvements include turn lanes and widening to all three approaches to the intersection of Sleepy Hole Road/ Nansemond Parkway, a new traffic signal, and relocation of the main entrance of Nansemond River High School to Sleepy Hole Road. Some improvements will be required to the Nansemond River High School Property to improve vehicular circulation in the parking lots. These improvements include providing additional parking, reconfiguring some of the drive aisles and the design of a new access road that will connect to Sleepy Hole Road approximately 750 feet north of the Sleepy Hole Road/ Nansemond Parkway intersection.  Additional improvements may include a closed drainage system on the south side of Nansemond Parkway from the Seaboard Coastline Railroad Right of Way to the existing Sidewalk in front of Nansemond River High School.
