• St. Paul's Area Transformation

UPDATE: St. Paul's Road and Lane Closures

Improvements to the roads and infrastructure in Tidewater Gardens are officially underway as a part of Phase 1 of the Tidewater Gardens Transformation!

As a result, Charlotte Street between Fenchurch and Chapel Streets will be closed to all traffic and pedestrians through the end of February. Drivers are encouraged to use Walke Street via Mariner Street to access Charlotte Street and pedestrians are encouraged to use Chapel Street to and from Mariner and Fenchurch Streets.

Over the next several months, Norfolk’s Department of Transit will install extended versions of Church Street and E. Freemason Street as a part of Phase 1. These new roadways will include traffic and pedestrian signals, wider sidewalks, bike lanes and other enhancements as well as underground power, water, sanitary sewer and stormwater infrastructure.
