Crews beginning shift to westbound full closures on Tuesday, July 26

NORFOLK– Beginning Tuesday, July 26, crews working for the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will begin work on the westbound lanes of Terminal Boulevard in the City of Norfolk, near the Port of Virginia’s Norfolk International Terminals and Naval Support Activity Hampton Roads Headquarters Installation. The new work schedule for full directional weeknight and weekend closures of Terminal Boulevard will be as follows:

Terminal Boulevard Westbound (traveling from I-564 towards Hampton Boulevard)
• Full Weeknight closures Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 8 p.m. until 5 a.m. the following morning.

Terminal Boulevard Eastbound (traveling from Hampton Boulevard towards I-564)
• Full Weekend closures beginning Fridays at 8 p.m. until Mondays at 5 a.m.

Work will continue in this manner for the next 4-5 weeks, until crews are completely done with Terminal Boulevard Eastbound. At that point, all work will switch to Terminal Boulevard Westbound. The contract completion date for the project is in January of 2017.

Traffic will continue to be detoured using I-564/Admiral Taussig Boulevard and Hampton Boulevard. Neighborhood access will continue to be maintained via Diven St. or Meredith St. during full closures, as well as access to Ruthven Road (Sewells Point Golf Course).

The contract for the Terminal Boulevard Resurfacing Project was awarded in May to Virginia Paving for approximately $5 million dollars. For more information, visit the Terminal Boulevard Resurfacing Project website.

Motorists are encouraged to call 511 or the Traffic Information Line at 757-361-3016, visit www.511virginia.org, or listen to Highway Advisory Radio (HAR) 1680 AM for current traffic and travel information.
