Jordan Bridge Portsmouth closes

Today is the last day for commuters to use the Jordan Bridge in Portsmouth to Chesapeake.  7,000 plus people will have to take an alternate route.  This means more traffic in the Portsmouth Tunnel and on S. Military Highway.  For those of you that work at the Portsmouth Naval Hospital, Portsmouth Shipyard, Downtown Portsmouth, or Coast Guard Bases this will be a new headache for you.  I feel your pain!!!

For those of you considering buying in Portsmouth, if you work in the area you will not be effected but for those who work in Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, or Norfolk.  You may need to reconsider.  According to the pilot online, “The real traffic nightmare could begin in July, when a project to replace the Gilmerton Bridge will reduce a section of Military Highway from four to two lanes for 40 months. During that time, peak afternoon backups could grow from 2.1 miles to 3 miles at the Downtown Tunnel and from 2.8 miles to 3.9 miles at the Midtown Tunnel, according to a Hampton Roads Metropolitan Planning Organization analysis. The High-Rise Bridge on Interstate 64 could face 1,400 more vehicles each day.”  This will inconvenience everyone no matter which side they are on.  

Hampton Roads is slowly adding themselves to the traffic nightmare cities list.  Along with our many tunnels and bridges the road construction has been very slow.  Hopefully, you have a map or navigation system to find the best shortcuts thru the city.

If your relocating to the area and trying to figure out what areas to move to in relationship to the area that you will be working in then contact me and I can help you.

Congrats to All Americans

Congrats to all Americans and Hampton Roads citizens! We did it, we showed up in rare form. In numbers to vote for change on either side of the isle. I voted in Chesapeake, VA and It took me 50 minutes from the time I parked my car, stood in line, voted and came on out. I was disappointed because I was prepared to give my husband the I told you we should have voted absentee speech. I was glad to see large crowds on the news. We can’t say are vote did not make a difference because this time it definitely will. I hope next year we will be benefiting from some changes. That’s what this is all for. I hope the new policies are implemented, I hope the candidates were not just talk, I hope the Senate and the House hold up there end of the deal so that we can move on to bigger and brighter things as a nation.

Thanks to everyone who voted!
