In order to facilitate improved drainage during extreme weather events to alleviate roadway flooding, the City of Suffolk will install large box culvert drainage structures under the existing roadway in the 2500 block of Pruden Boulevard/Route 460 extending between Lake Meade and Sadler Pond. This work will require a full road closure at that location followed by a partial road closure. Variable message boards have been placed along the route to alert the motoring public of the upcoming roadwork.
The anticipated construction start date is February 11, 2019. At that time, the road will be closed to all traffic for a period of 90 days. A detour route will be established via the Route 460 bypass. On or near May 11, 2019, the roadway will be opened allowing for use of one lane in each direction for a period of 6 weeks. Every effort is being made to minimize the impacts to traffic however, some delay time and use of the detour route should be expected.
