The interim project will add three new ramps connecting I-4 to Daryl Carter Parkway, including exit ramps from both directions of I-4 to Daryl Carter Parkway and an entrance ramp to eastbound I-4. It will also convert the existing Daryl Carter Parkway overpass to a diverging diamond interchange (DDI). The westbound I-4 entrance ramp will be built as part of a future I-4 Beyond the Ultimate project. Project elements include construction of a single, buffer-separated, managed lane from west of Daryl Carter Parkway to west of Central Florida Parkway. This managed lane will be constructed in three separate projects, with the finished lane extending from west of Sand Lake Road to west of SR 536 (World Center Drive). The interchange improvements will give motorists an alternate route to reach parks, retailers and restaurants in the fast-growing Lake Buena Vista area.

The Lesner Bridge is arguably Virginia Beach's signature bridge and boasts an average annual daily traffic (AADT) count of over 20,000 vehicles. The City of Virginia Beach set a goal to produce a bridge with a 100-year lifespan that incorporated new aesthetics and safety measures.
