VIRGINIA BEACH -- One lane on the Laskin Road Bridge will be closed - at least through the weekend - so Public Works crews can work on strengthening an outside structural section of the bridge.

The work affects just one westbound lane between Birdneck Road and First Colonial Road, says spokesman Drew Lankford.

The work began at 9 a.m. and could stretch into next week, he added.

Detour signs are in place for this work to advise the approximately 14,000 vehicles that go westbound in that area. Drivers may experience delays in the area.
