VIRGINIA BEACH - Beginning Monday for most of February, drivers on part of Northampton Blvd. in Va. Beach may run into bigger backups than usual.

Trees are being removed on westbound Northampton Boulevard between Jack Frost Road and the Independence Boulevard interchange. One westbound lane will be closed most of this time; two of the three westbound lanes will closed only during the early morning hours weekends.

City officials say the trees need to come down for safety reasons.

LANE CLOSURE SCHEDULE:
Weekdays: 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Weekends: 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
