Norfolk Car Accident Injury Lawyer Report : Improvement Begins at Dangerous Norfolk Interchange
It’s known as the “Norview Avenue weave” and for drivers who encounter it, it can be not only frightening but dangerous.
As experienced Norfolk, VA auto accident injury lawyers, we are pleased to see a temporary ramp has opened on April 18, 2012, making it considerably easier for drivers to get safely onto Interstate 64 east at Norview Avenue in Norfolk.
Later a more permanent solution will appear in the form of an upgraded on-ramp loop,” and a new off-ramp taking I-64 motorists onto Norview, the Virginian-Pilot reported.
The Pilot reported that anyone who has ever driven onto or off the access to the I-64 at Norview Avenue has experienced a “driver’s dance.”
It means cars, motorcycles and trucks going onto the freeway can easily come into contact with those seeking to exit to merge within a short distance. It’s not just annoying; it’s dangerous.
The Pilot cited at least 17 collisions from January 2004 to December 2011, due to the infamous “Norview weave.”
This improvement on the I-64 is welcome and clearly long overdue. Our Norfolk, VA car collision attorneys, see enough accidents due to factors such as drunk driving, without having poor road design adding to the hazards on Norfolk’s roads.
Drivers should look out for new traffic patterns at Norview Avenue and construction work that could last until the beginning of the year. They should also be aware of the particular hazards posed in construction zones.
