NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — The City of Norfolk Government has rescheduled its last workshop for community input on a transportation study.

The meeting is now taking place on Monday, Oct. 17 from 6-7:30 p.m. at the East Ocean View Community Center (9520 20th Bay Street). 

This is the third and final round of public outreach to receive input on a transportation study of Ocean View Avenue corridor from Willoughby Spit to East Beach. 

During the meeting, previous community input will be discussed, as will traffic operations analysis results, lane repurposing (bike lane) recommendations, and pedestrian crossing treatment recommendations.  

Within the transportation study, the City of Norfolk is seeking to expand bike lanes between 1st View Street Cape View Avenue as well as between 19th Bay Street and Pretty Lake Avenue to complete a gap in the bicycle network. 

The City of Norfolk has also received requests to improve pedestrian crossing and beach access at various locations along Ocean View Avenue, including parts of Willoughby Spit. Their focus is on: 

  • Feasibility of expanding bicycle/scooter facilities and accommodating golf carts 
  • Feasibility of a speed reduction 
  • Improving pedestrian crossings and beach access 

Registration for the event is not required. You can find out more here.
