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.
