HRT resumes work on Naval Station Norfolk study

Hampton Roads Transit has resumed work on the Naval Station Norfolk Transit Extension Study, which was put on hold on October 8 during the 16-day shutdown of most federal government work.


The study is exploring corridor options for connecting The Tide light rail with the Navy base. The study, which will cost $1.8 million, began in June with a series of public workshops to help define the purpose and need of the high-capacity transit project. A second set of workshops was held last month to develop potential corridors.

The next round of meetings is anticipated for early 2014 when information gathered from the earlier workshops will be presented showing a range of possible solutions the public considered for routes to the base.
