Road Construction Slows Downtown

NORFOLK – If you’ve been driving around Norfolk lately, you might have run into large amounts of road construction, which is slowing down traffic and causing a headache for drivers.

During the first week of September, the City of Norfolk kicked off a $1.5 million project for street repairs and improvements, spanning across more than 13 miles of city streets.

The project is for a full depth concrete replacements, closing lanes for more than a week.

Milling and concrete crews will work around traffic and lane closures.

After surface milling is completed, asphalt will be installed and lanes will open about an hour after a lane has been completed.

The process will take approximately four to five weeks for each section of road.
