Virginia Beach Boulevard Sewer Pipeline Replacement


-- Longer work hours expected, approximately 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. --

HRSD, your regional wastewater treatment utility, continues work in your area. The Virginia Beach Boulevard Sanitary Sewer Pipeline Improvement project will replace the existing 24-inch sewer pipeline with a larger 42-inch pipeline to reliably move the increased sewer flow along Virginia Beach Boulevard from North Lynnhaven Road to Great Neck Road. The work in your area should take place primarily between the hours of 7 a.m. and 8 p.m., Monday through Friday (*new* hours) with one period of 24/7 “around the clock” work to tunnel a pipe under the waterway to the east of your neighborhood.

Starting in the coming week and likely extending over the next few months, work hours behind Lynnriver Drive will be modified to approximately 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. in order to remain on schedule while the contractor constructs a large excavation in the railroad right-of-way near London Bridge Creek and tunnels the 42-inch pipeline underneath the creek. Thank you for your patience during this very important and complex work. We look forward to restoring the area behind Lynnriver Drive to a natural condition.

While our project team works diligently to minimize impacts, you may notice increased noise, traffic, crew activity, and heavy equipment (with back-up safety alarms) associated with construction. Please take care when traveling around the construction area and for your safety, do not enter the site.

Due to the nature of construction, work is weather and situation dependent and dates are subject to change. For updates, please visit the project's website page,

Thank you for your support of this effort to help achieve HRSD's vision:

Future generations will inherit clean waterways and be able to keep them clean.
