Portsmouth bridge ramp to close, sending traffic back into neighborhood (HamptonRoads.com/Pilot Online)

Jodi and I used to live in the neighborhood of Port Norfolk, where my parents and brother and sister-in-law still live. It was a pain (and dangerous) to have the main road in the neighborhood also be a main thouroughfare to the highway, and the new exit/entrance ramp is supposed to clear out a lot of that traffic.

Last Saturday the new ramp opened, and the nieghborhood had a block party to celebrate! Unfortunately, it looks like they've had to close the ramp again while they work out some new traffic smarls that were (evidently) unanticipated. Sigh.
