NORFOLK, VA – Demolition of the West Ocean View Avenue flyover at Tidewater Drive is scheduled to take place Saturday, July 25 through Sunday, July 26, 2020. Drivers should anticipate the temporary closure of Tidewater Drive between Mason Creek Road and West Ocean View Avenue for demolition preparation activities between 7p.m. and 6a.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday, and/or Thursday night before the bridge demolition weekend.
Southbound Tidewater Drive traffic will detour eastward along West Ocean View Avenue, then along Mason Creek Road toward the intersection with Tidewater Drive. Northbound Tidewater Drive traffic to 4th View Street and I-64 will detour westward along Mason Creek Road, then along Ridgewell Avenue, Rippard Avenue, and O’Conner Crescent to 4th View Street.
The deteriorated flyover was taken out of service recently and replaced by an at-grade, signalized intersection to improve safety, pedestrian and bike accessibility, and context sensitivity. For more information, please visit https://www.norfolk.gov/4781/W-Ocean-View-Ave-Tidewater-Dr-Project.
