Avoid Train Delays on Hampton Blvd with New Text Alert

NORFOLK, VA – Here is something you can toot your own horn about!  Don’t sit in traffic on Hampton Blvd waiting for the train to pass.  In partnership with The Port of Virginia, drivers can sign up for text alerts and receive a 20- minute heads up before a train crosses Hampton Blvd and Terminal Blvd.   

To subscribe, text NFKTrain to 888-777.  Standard text messaging rates may apply.  

“I’m thrilled we are able to offer the alert and I encourage residents and commuters to sign up.  By giving enough notice about a train crossing, drivers can now plan their route and keep moving,” said Courtney Doyle, Councilwoman and chair, Hampton Blvd. Task Force.  

The Hampton Blvd. Task Force is made up of residents and businesses along the corridor.  Since its inception, the task force has spearheaded several projects to improve safety along Hampton Blvd.  These projects include reduced speed limits, improved pedestrian crossings, red light cameras at Princess Anne Road and more.
