For your information and use –
Norfolk Southern is replacing 12 railroad crossings at major intersections, one at a time, throughout the city.  By upgrading the railroad crossings, trains will be able to move through intersections more efficiently with fewer breakdowns and delays.
  • During the work the roadway will be fully closed in both directions to vehicular and pedestrian traffic.  It is estimated that each closure will take about 3-6 days depending on weather and other construction issues. 
  •  You can also obtain information by calling the Norfolk Information hotline at 664-4010 code 896.
  • Communications, Development and Public Works have developed an extensive communication plan and are working with civic leagues, businesses, media and other social media outlets to communicate information about this project. They are also coordinating with  Norfolk Southern on the traffic mitigation plans.
