NORFOLK — The Department of Transit invites residents to discuss and identify multi-modal safety improvements along Princess Anne Road during an open house on Thursday.

The open house will take place at Jordan-Newby Anchor Branch Library at Broad Creek, 1425 Norchester Ave., from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Improvements to the 1.8-mile corridor could include adding Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant sidewalks, accessible bus stops and new bike lanes to make the roadway safer for all users on Princess Anne Road from Church Street to Ballentine Boulevard, officials said.

The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. and there will be opening remarks at 6:15 p.m.

Following a presentation of the project overview, residents will participate in an hour-long focus group discussing a range of topics on transportation improvements that benefit drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists and transit users, officials said.

Feedback from each participant will help guide the Department of Transit improve transportation infrastructure and safety along the Princess Anne Corridor, officials said.
