NORFOLK-- Beginning next month, it will be more difficult for drivers traveling through the Downtown Tunnel at night and on weekends, as two years of intensive rehab work is scheduled to begin.

Starting Friday, August 9, the westbound tube will be closed between 8 p.m. Friday and 5 a.m. Monday until next spring, except on holiday weekends.

The same tube will be reduced to one lane from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. on some weeknights until May.

Once the westbound lanes are finished, work will begin on the eastbound lanes.

Work is scheduled to be completed in 2015.
