NEWPORT NEWS—The Newport News Department of Engineering is hoping to improve public access throughout the city by creating a more sustainable and safe pedestrian atmosphere, based on required federal standards.
One proposed project includes installing a five-foot-wide sidewalk along the south side of Briarfield Road from Marshall Avenue to Chestnut Avenue, which will be designed to increase pedestrian, multi-use, and accessibility for people with disabilities.
A public meeting about the project will be held on Tuesday, June 13, from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. The open forum meeting will be held in Classroom A of the Police Training Academy building located at 5851 Jefferson Ave. in Newport News. Written and oral comments are welcome.
Residents are invited to review maps, drawings, and other information concerning the proposal at the meeting. Maps, drawings, and other information about the project will also be available at Newport News City Hall located at 2400 Washington Ave. in Newport News, Department of Engineering, Seventh Floor. Additional information is available on the project web page, where public feedback can also be provided.
