From News Release:
Drainage Improvements Work Begins on Cape Henry Drive between Starfish Road & Ebb Tide Road
Virginia Beach Public Works is providing an update for a new Eastern Shore Drive Drainage Improvements Project Advance Section 1C.2.
The contractor will commence construction for this 2nd phased drainage project for the Lynnhaven Colony area the week of August 1-5, 2022. The work will be solely located on Cape Henry Drive between Starfish Road to Ebb Tide Road. The project will relocate a large gravity sanitary sewer which exists beneath the Cape Henry Canal, southward to underneath Cape Henry Drive. This work is necessary to widen and deepen the Cape Henry Canal beginning the summer of next year.
It’s important to note that this work will not interfere with traffic at W. Great Neck Road. Cape Henry Drive will be closed for through traffic in two phases of construction between the side streets noted above, with a detour plan for each phase.
The Contractor will continue to provide access to resident’s driveways, mail, trash pickup and emergency services. The Cape Henry Trail will not be shut down and will continue to provide service during construction. The trail and Cape Henry Drive construction will be separated with a 4’ high visibility fence.
The anticipated schedule is:
August 1, 2022 – July 14, 2023.
The contractor for the job is Trident Civil.
