NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - The Navy has released a Draft Environmental Assessment evaluating potential environmental effects of Navy's proposal to conduct practice landing operations at either the Emporia-Greensville location or Wallops.
Ted Brown with the U.S. Fleet Forces Command says the Navy has not identified which site will be used. According to Brown, the E-2 Hawkeye and C-2 Greyhound aircrafts used would conduct up to 20,000 FLCP passes annually at whichever site is selected.
A Navy spokesman told WAVY.com there will be several public meetings scheduled in the potential areas.

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.
Drivers traveling between Hatteras Island and the mainland were forced to use an emergency ferry Wednesday, following the sudden closure of the Bonner Bridge Tuesday.
State officials say construction on a new Bonner Bridge has been delayed for years because of a legal battle with an environmental group.
