Boardwalk Around Battleship Closed for Repairs

The boardwalk around USS Wisconsin is getting an exciting facelift.

According to the Downtown Norfolk Council, The Nauticus pier around the battleship will be under repair now until June.

The boardwalk is part of the Elizabeth River Trail.  Signs are posted with alternate routes for pedestrians and bicyclists.

As shown on this map, the detour uses the sidewalk on Brooke Avenue and Boush Street to get folks around the construction zone.
