Earlier this morning, Norfolk’s 130-ton cruise ship gangway was removed from the Nauticus pier to make way for a new passenger boarding bridge scheduled to arrive later this summer. Crofton Industries’ floating crane “Samson” removed the gangway and transferred it to an awaiting barge.

Norfolk’s gangway was installed in 2007 shortly after the Half Moone Cruise Center was built. Since that time, hundreds of thousands of cruise ship passengers have transited the corridor to embark/disembark their ship.

Currently, 95 cruise vessel calls are scheduled at Nauticus through 2023. Nauticus is proud to welcome the Carnival Magic to Norfolk in 2022 – the largest vessel to homeport from the city.

On June 1, the Parking Division will resume enforcement of metered parking spaces and will end use of the one-hour grace period. 🅿️🚗

A one-hour grace period at metered parking went into effect in July 2020 as part of the OpenNorfolk initiative to provide pandemic relief to restaurants and businesses offering curbside or grab-and-go service. Now, as pandemic restrictions ease businesses will benefit from the greater space turnover. Meters include convenient payment options including coins and credit cards. Or download the Park Norfolk app, available on iOs and Android.
