The Virginia Port Authority has issued the following:

Winter Weather Advisory 4 (FINAL) – 11:30 a.m. – January 5, 2018

Port Partners,

Ensuring the safety of our colleagues, partners and assets is always our top priority. In the aftermath of Winter Storm Grayson, the process of service recovery is well underway, within the framework of a safe working environment.  We are prioritizing recovery efforts at our terminals, though high winds and sub-freezing temperatures create a challenging environment for snow removal and service restoration. 

Please note that we will operate full day truck gates on Saturday, Jan. 6, and Sunday, Jan. 7 (details below).

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

 Friday, January 5

  • Truck gates CLOSED at NIT, VIG, PMT, NNMT and the PPCY
  • Richmond Marine Terminal – REOPENS at 1300 hours
  • 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.
