Please join the Town of Ashland at 10:25 am to celebrate the new Amtrak Virginia service. This new service will connect the Town of Ashland with the City of Norfolk. Speakers, activities and refreshments will be provided.
This will block both the England Street and Henry Clay Road crossings for 30 minutes. The train with approximately eight ceremonial cars will be blocking these crossings for approximately 30 minutes beginning around 11:00 am. Ashland and State Police, as well as Town of Ashland Public Works, will be directing traffic around this immediate area, however; if you need to travel through
this area during this time frame we recommend that you use an alternate route such as Ashcake Road to traverse east or westbound through Ashland.
Businesses in this area will still be accessible as police will direct you to the nearest open roadway in which you can access the area.
Oversized vehicles, to include tractor trailers, should utilize the Ashcake Road crossing.
We thank you in advance for your patience and if you need any further details please contact the Ashland Police Department at (804) 412-0600.
