NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - Naval Station Norfolk will be testing out a pilot program for identity card scanning starting Monday, Sept. 24.
During the program, set to last through Oct. 31, gate personnel will be scanning IDs for every entrant, but the decision whether or not to allow someone in will not be dependent upon the ID. The process should take an extra two to eight seconds and delays at gates are expected.
According to Teri Davis with Naval Station Norfolk, security personnel will continue using current procedures when scanning cards.
A company has been hired to complete the repairs to the Herbert C. Bonner Bridge on the Outer Banks, but how long those repairs will take remains unknown.
State officials say construction on a new Bonner Bridge has been delayed for years because of a legal battle with an environmental group.
Michelle Price with Newport News Public Schools told WAVY.com at least three city school buses ran substantially late Wednesday afternoon, delivering children home several hours after dismissal.
