Braasch Reconstruction Project to Begin April 13

Braasch Avenue from 1st to 3rd Street is planned be closed on April 13, 2020 as part of the Braasch Avenue Reconstruction Project. This closure is expected to last approximately 3 months. North and South traffic on 1st Street will be maintained throughout the project, but may be reduced to one lane in each direction during portions of the project. The project will be broken into three phases, all of which include utility, paving and landscaping work. The project benefits from a Department of Economic Development Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) awarded to the City of Norfolk.

Access to properties along Braasch Avenue will be maintained throughout the project. Future phases of the project include Braasch Avenue from 3rd Street to 5th Street, and 4th Street from Braasch Avenue to the railroad tracks. More details will be provided for future closures as construction progresses.
