HAMPTON ROADS, Va. (WAVY) — Wegmans told 10 On Your Side Tuesday that they’re not looking into building a store in the Hampton Roads region any time soon.

Earlier this year, the grocery chain proposed plans to build its first store in the area near the Newport News/Williamsburg International Airport.

Nearby residents expressed concerns about traffic and congestion at Jefferson Avenue and Kiln Creek Parkway.

Ultimately, the developer ended up pulling out of the project.
