Starting next week.
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.
For additional information, please contact Christina Tumminelli, Project Manager
with Trident Civil at (757) 393-5904, or Public Works Engineering at (757) 385-4131.
A brief history of attempting to use the beloved Lynnhaven Boat Ramp & Beach Facility(LBR&BF) as an industrial operation including safety conflicts with families, kids & boaters without checks & balances and logical rules & regulations for its safe use.
You probably heard by now BAC voted to support:
“AN ORDINANCE AUTHORIZING THE EXECUTION OF USE AGREEMENTS BETWEEN THE CITY AND INDIVIDUAL PROPERTY OWNERS PERMITTING USE OF THE CITY-OWNED LYNNHAVEN TRANSFER FACILITY FOR PRIVATE DREDGING PROJECTS”
We look forward to working with all stakeholders of the LBR&BF in ensuring “private dredging operations” will be safe and have the least amount of negative impact on this wildly popular VB Parks & Recreation facility.
We also look forward to seeing the words in “AN ORDINANCE”.
You might want to contact your City Council person today about this.
We believe a couple of the rules might come from Beaches & Waterways Commission Report from 2012.
Do you remember a barge hitting the Lesner Bridge days before City Council was to vote on making the LBR&BF a “dredge material transfer station”?
Do you remember a boat going up in flames in minutes on beach in river by LBR&BF?
Do you remember the tractor trailer delving to Starbucks losing all electronics – as in no brakes, no lights etc on Lesner Bridge & fortunately the skilled driver successfully jack knifed the truck to stop it which closed the Lesner Bridge for hours?
Thank you for Agenda Mark!
