The Virginia Port Authority has issued the following.

Winter Weather Advisory 3 – 12:15 p.m. – January 4, 2018

(An electronic version of the following announcement can be found here: Winter Weather Advisory 3 – 12:15 p.m. – January 4, 2018)

Port Partners,

Ensuring the safety of our colleagues, partners and assets is always our top priority. We have begun the process of service recovery, within the framework of a safe working environment.

As Winter Storm Grayson exits our region today, The Port of Virginia is assessing the impacts and prioritizing recovery efforts in line with our published Winter Weather Plan (attached).

As of 0900 hours this morning, 6-8 inches of snow has accumulated across our terminals in Norfolk, Portsmouth and Newport News.  Another three inches of snow fell at Richmond Marine Terminal.  High winds and sub-freezing temperatures are contributing to blowing and drifting snow – a challenging environment for snow removal and service restoration.  A blizzard warning remains in effect through 1300 hours today.

For Port of Virginia terminals, please be advised of the following:

Thursday, January 4

  • Truck gates CLOSED at NIT, VIG, PMT, NNMT and the PPCY
  • Richmond Marine Terminal CLOSED
  • Virginia Inland Port – OPEN, business as usual
  • All administrative offices CLOSED

 Friday, January 5

  • Virginia Inland Port – OPEN, business as usual
  • The Financial Services Center (FSC) and the Portsmouth Operations Center (POC) – CLOSED
  • The World Trade Center HQ – OPEN – reduced staffing levels

Based on the Thursday and Friday gate closures, we are committed to working with our ocean carrier partners to address free-time/last free implications, and the impact on the trucking community.
