NORFOLK, Virginia — Public workshops will be held next week in Norfolk on proposed routes extending the city's light rail to Norfolk Naval Station.
Hampton Roads Transit has scheduled workshops Monday at Granby High School, Tuesday at the Ted Constant Convocation Center at Old Dominion University and Wednesday at the Norfolk Waterside Marriott.
The transit agency released conceptual maps of the proposed routes on Wednesday. The routes run along most major north-south corridors in the city.
Transit development officer Julie Timm tells The Virginian-Pilot (http://bit.ly/1mcWegI ) that the agency plans to have recommendations of two to four routes for further study by summer.
She says the agency is willing to consider corridors that have not yet been proposed.
