NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - A 15-month study to explore expanding light rail to Naval Station Norfolk has begun.
According to a news release from Hampton Roads Transit, the study will be conducted by HDR Engineering, Inc. The "Naval Station Norfolk Transit Extension Study" will allow for the City of Norfolk and HRT to develop ideas on the potential route.
The base brings in 80,000 vehicles daily, according to the release, and is already served by several express bus routes.
The study is slated to last 15 months, and will be conducted utilizing money from the state and the federal government. It is the first step in a multi-year federal study to obtain federal funds for the project.
Newport News police officers are in the middle of a massive operation to get wanted criminals out of the neighborhoods. They are rounding up everyone who has an outstanding warrant.
Hampton Roads Transit customers could see higher fares to ride the bus, light rail and ferry.
Running a red light could cost you a hefty fine, even if an officer doesn't pull you over. Cameras are going up at intersections across Hampton Roads, and the most recent went live Monday in downtown Norfolk.
