It is going to be a little easier to reach the beach this summer thanks to the Virginia Department of Transportation.

New road signs in Virginia will help drivers choose the quickest route to the Virginia Beach oceanfront and North Carolina's Outer Banks. The transportation department showed off six new electronic message signs in the Hampton Roads area this week.

VDOT will be displaying current travel times in minutes for two different routes. The six signs will be posted at strategic decision points in Newport News, Virginia Beach and Chesapeake.

Travel time information will also be available at safety rest areas and welcome centers in Fredericksburg, Skippers, and New Kent County.
