Construction to continue in Downtown Norfolk for a few more weeks
It seems impossible to get through the area sometimes. Boush and Olney Streets have been blocked off for a sewer project.
One of the alternate streets is partially shut down, too.
And you shouldn’t expect things to get better for several weeks.
It’s all part of a special project by the Hampton Roads Sanitation District.
They’re working to replace some old sewer lines.
In October not long after they started, they found a cracked concrete channel.
And on top of that, pools of ground water.
That’s pushing their completion date back from last month to the middle of December.
And thanks to a big hole on Duke, getting around is going to be worse.
Norfolk crews are working to fix a broken water line.
Duke Street is now shut down to one lane in each direction.
Expect to see this for at least a couple more weeks.
