Norfolk Southern railroad crossings within the city of Norfolk have reached the end of their useful life and Norfolk Southern has been permitted by the city to replace 12 crossings between April and July. The railroad crossings at Granby Street and Little Creek road in the Wards Corner Business District are included in those to be rehabilitated.
During the construction project, full closures in both directions are required. Traffic will be detoured to major arterial streets. Signs and detours will not be placed along neighborhood streets. Motorists are encouraged to follow the detour to signalized intersections and to avoid neighborhood streets.
The roads will be closed during the followed dates:
E. Little Creek Road, near I-64 and Granby Street, 6/18-6/20
Granby Street. near Little Creek Rd. (3 northbound lanes), 7/9-711
Granby Street. near Little Creek Rd. (3 southbound lanes), 7/16-7/18
