Lane closures to affect area near Green Grove and Kings Ridge

NEWPORT NEWS — Motorists traveling near the Green Grove and Kings Ridge Area can expect lane closures tentatively beginning July 23.

Contractors will be installing a 30- to 48-inch storm sewer on Jefferson Avenue for the Atkinson Boulevard Project.

The work will require closure of the two interior lanes – one southbound and one northbound.

According to the city, it is anticipated that inside lane closures will be approximately 500 feet in length and the closure area will move slowly while work progresses from Green Grove Lane at 1700 feet north where the new Atkinson Boulevard Roadway will intersect Jefferson Avenue.

The storm sewer installation is scheduled to be completed by the end of the year.
