The VPA has issued the following:

NOW IN EFFECT: HRSD Utility Work at NIT – Traffic Pattern Changes on Railroad Ave.

Port Partners,

The traffic pattern changes, described below, are now in effect. Please pay special attention to this bullet, as the VPA Port Police will monitor compliance:

• Temporary stoplights will be installed, controlling traffic to, from and between NIT South, NIT North, Lagoon Rd. and the Navy’s
Farrier Firefighting School

(ORIGINAL MESSAGE)
At Norfolk International Terminals (NIT), the Hampton Roads Sanitation District (HRSD) operates a treatment facility within the confines of the terminal. HRSD has informed us that improvement/repair work is required, on their infrastructure. This work – to be performed by an HRSD contractor – will impact traffic patterns on Railroad Avenue, at the intersection with Lagoon Road. See the image below.

Beginning on Monday, January 11, 2021, and continuing for a period of up to eight weeks (24/7 schedule), please be advised of the following:
• Railroad Ave. will be reduced from four lanes to one lane (alternating traffic flow), in proximity to the intersection with Lagoon Rd.
• Temporary stoplights will be installed, controlling traffic to, from and between NIT South, NIT North, Lagoon Rd. and the Navy’s
Farrier Firefighting School
• The Baker Street Gate will remain open and there will be no impact to traffic outside NIT

For the duration of this work, all traffic may continue to transit the total length of Railroad Ave., but extreme caution is advised.

Workforce Road is recommended as an alternative routing (personal occupancy vehicles only – no truck traffic).

Truckers are urged to enter and exit NIT via the North Gate or South Gate exclusively, for North or South Yard transactions. Limiting transit to the North or South Terminals, via the appropriate Gate, will enable drivers to avoid the construction zone.
