Newport News, Va. – Beginning Friday, May 9 for approximately six weeks, motorists will not be able to turn left from southbound Warwick Boulevard onto Nelson Drive east of Warwick Boulevard, and two through lanes will be shifted to accommodate construction in the roadway.
Southbound motorists can make a u-turn at the signalized intersection at Cedar Lane as an alternate access to Nelson Drive east of Warwick.
Signage has been installed in the area and drivers should stay alert for traffic pattern changes. Traffic patterns on northbound Warwick are not affected and the median crossover at Nelson Drive is expected to remain open.
This traffic pattern change is required for construction crews to install a new stormwater pipe under Warwick Boulevard in the right lane. The new pipe is part of a drainage improvement project for the adjacent neighborhood.
