Norfolk, Va. - Drivers in Norfolk can expect construction at the intersection of 21st Street and Llewellyn Avenue to last at least another month.

The city has been improving the traffic and pedestrian lights along with the storm water drainage system at the intersection.  The project costs about 600,000 dollars, most of which was awarded to the city through VDOT.

Local business owners talked to NewsChannel 3 today about the construction. They say it's a hassle and fear it's keeping patrons from finding their businesses.

Some business owners say there is a need for the new drainage system and believe it will ultimately help shops in the area.

The city expects construction to be completed by the end of May or beginning of June.
