Potential Light Rail Extension Routes

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

Councilman Wright asking for joint meeting to discuss light rail

June 2, 2008

Norfolk City Councilman Randy Wright is asking assistant City Manager Nancy Johnson for a joint meeting of the Mayors’ Wards Corner Task Force and Ocean View Task Force at the new Mary D. Pretlow Anchor Branch Library in Ocean View on June 26th.  Councilman Wright will make his first presentation on the “Tide” to Ocean View. Look for times in a future post. Any route to Ocean View should include a rail station in Wards Corner. It is important that all concerned citizens attend this meeting.
