This study is a detailed alternatives analysis for high capacity transit service on the west side of Norfolk, connecting the Tide light rail with the Naval Station Norfolk through the communities of Ghent and Chelsea. A light rail extension in this area was initially dismissed during a previous alternatives analysis, and the area is being reevaluated as a possible alternative, this time using a multimodal approach, to be brought forward during a forthcoming DEIS. Foursquare ITP’s role in the study is to assist with the development of the purpose and need through market and flow analysis; provide strategic guidance on public and stakeholder outreach; development of both Tier 1 and Tier 2 alternatives from a transit operations perspective; and evaluation of the alternatives.
