VIRGINIA BEACH---A smoother ride through the Oceanfront area could be a few years away.
 
The city of Virginia Beach plans to invest $20 million in local funds into a road-widening project on Pacific Avenue.
 
The busy summer thoroughfare will get additional sidewalks, turn lanes and a new streetscape for beach-goers and tourists.
 
"It gives you more space and you can occupy more," said Virginia Beach resident Shante Stokes. "It is full during the summer season and you see a lot more people out and about."
 
The project will go out for bids early next year and is expected to be completed by 2016.
