NORTHBOUND HAMPTON BLVD. CLOSED

A traffic accident involving a tractor trailer has completely closed northbound Hampton Boulevard and officials expect the road to be blocked until potentially 9:30 p.m. tonight.

A truck lost control and struck an electrical utility pole at the foot of the Hampton Boulevard bridge near the Norfolk Yacht Club. The pole is blocking all lanes of traffic and Dominion Power crews are on site. Dominion officials estimate the road to be blocked anywhere from three to six hours, which is between 6:30 and 9:30 p.m. Commuters are urged to take alternate routes.
