The Norfolk Naval Base Light Rail Extension Study is underway. As a result of a number of public meetings, 17 different preliminary routes for the extension have been identified with a number of those preliminary routes coming through Wards Corner.
Here is the complete PDF document with all of the preliminary routes identified thus far: Norfolk Naval Base Light Rail Study_Prelim options (PDF). These routes are not exclusive; the final route may very well be a combination of the preliminary routes or a completely different route.
Hampton Roads Transit will be holding more public input meetings to receive input on the preliminary routes. The public is invited and encouraged to attend. Those meetings are scheduled as follows:
Feb. 24, 6p to 7:30, Granby High School
Feb. 25, 6p to 7:30, ODU, Ted Constant Convocation Center
Feb. 26, 6p to 7:30, Downtown Marriott
I support light rail. It would be great for all of Hampton Rds. I would like it from downtown up Granby St to Wards Cr to the base amd Ocean View. How about parking spaces marked off on Granby St between Church St and Wards Cr. It would incrrase the property value, slow down traffic,more neighborhood feel. The city has done this on 38th St. why not Granby.
