The first phase will be from I-264 to Dam Neck Road at Corporate Landing, the second from Dam Neck Road to Princess Anne Road, and the third from Princess Anne Road to the Chesapeake City line.

Current Status and Progress
The Current Estimates in the Schedule of Activities section only reflect the preliminary design phase, including environmental study, and limited site acquisition, which are the only activities currently funded in the FY 2006-07/FY 2011-12 Virginia Transportation Six-Year Program. The CIP Budget reflects the City's initiative to preserve the roadway corridor. HW Lochner completed the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for VDOT. Currently, this project is classified as development only in VDOT's 6-year program. The Draft EIS was completed in 2005 and went through the public hearing process in July 2005. The Final EIS was finalized and sent to Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). FHWA has refused to publish the FEIS in the Federal Register so Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), the US Army Corps of Engineers, the US Fish and Wildlife Service, the US Environmental Protection Agency, the City of Chesapeake and the City of Virginia Beach participated in facilitated mediation to help the project advance. The City of Virginia Beach has requested assistance from local Congressional representative delegations to engage the FHWA to issue the FEIS. VDOT and City of Virginia Beach are responding to FHWA issues.
