NORFOLK, Va. - The Tide light rail will not operate on the weekend of December 12 though December 13.

The closure will allow maintenance crews time to work on sections of track and ballast between Norfolk State University and Ballentine Boulevard.

Norfolk says after nearly 10 years of continuous service, it is normal for sections of track to need small adjustments to ensure a smoother ride for customers.

Temporary bus shuttles will provide service between stations, operating every 30 minutes from 6:00 midnight on Saturday, and 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Sunday.

Normal services will resume Monday, Dec. 14.
