The traffic situation going into Norfolk Naval Base has gone past ridiculous. Ridiculous is too weak of a word to describe the situation. It has now shifted to ludicrous and is beginning to approach out-fricking-rageous.
It should not take me an hour to travel less than four miles.
Here's a couple of ideas that could be implemented almost immediately:
- All Gate 2 traffic could be inbound in the morning. Outbound traffic is already closed. Man the outbound gates and have traffic come in those gates. There is plenty of room to merge.
- Double the guards on Gate 5. The traffic can not move through quickly enough and backs up on Hampton Blvd which then backs up for miles.
- Turn off the lights on Taussig Blvd. Don't allow people to cut through the NEX parking lot and keep the traffic following straight off 564 directly into gates 1 and 2.
