Abstract: The $400-million Dominion Boulevard Improvement Project, finished in 2016, is the largest locally administered project completed in the Commonwealth of Virginia to date. The project transformed Dominion Boulevard, in Chesapeake, from a two-lane road into a four-lane limited access, divided, toll highway composed of three new grade-separated interchanges and a twin-span bridge, crossing the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway. Innovative funding solutions, a jack-of-all-trades design team, and public involvement helped bridge the gap between concept and reality.
