CANCELED: Downtown Tunnel turning lane scheduled to close for fire main repair

PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — Elizabeth River Tunnels (ERT) said there will be no lane closures at the Downtown Tunnel on Nov. 13.

Saturday morning, Dana Woodson with the City of Portsmouth said the outside southbound lane of the Downtown Tunnel on Court Street between Bart Street and Pavilion Drive would be closed for a week while ERT repaired a fire main located on the lane.

In an email to Saturday afternoon, ERT said all lanes will remain open.

ERT say their operations and facilities teams will meet Nov. 13 to determine a plan for repair to the water main that will have the least impact to the driving public.

Once the plan has been approved and the proper permits have been obtained, they will provide an update.
