This is the second phase of the overall Laskin Road Phase I project. The project includes construction of an 8-lane divided highway (three through lanes and a continuous right turn lane in each direction) from Republic Road to the limits of the Laskin Road Bridge Replacement at Fremac Drive. This phase also includes full improvements to the Laskin Road/First Colonial Road intersection as well as construction of a 6-lane divided highway on First Colonial Road from Laurel Lane to I-264. The feeder roads along Laskin Road within the project limits will be removed with this project. 14-foot wide outside lanes for cyclists and a 10-foot wide shared-use path on one side of the roadway will be provided with a 5-foot wide sidewalk on the other side of Laskin Road. Aesthetic improvements such as a landscaped median and verge areas will enhance the roadway corridor. The roadway will be passable during the 100-year flood event.
