Virginia Beach Boulevard Sewer Pipeline Replacement


-- Local detour along Eureka Avenue --

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 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.

Starting the week of June 15, a partial road closure on the north side of Eureka will be in place to construct a pit to allow HRSD’s contractor to tunnel under Virginia Beach Boulevard with the new 42-in pipeline. When that work is complete, there will be a road closure on the south side of Eureka while the remaining portion of the 42-in pipeline is constructed via an open trench method. At all times, residents will be able to enter/leave the neighborhood either via the northern route (Virginia Beach Boulevard) or the southern route (Southern Boulevard). Detailed signage and barriers will be in place to direct traffic. For businesses, the partial road closure from Virginia Beach Boulevard to Haven Road will allow access to businesses via Virginia Beach Boulevard only. This portion of the project work is estimated to last approximately 2-3 months. Work is weather and situation dependent, and dates are subject to change.


While our project team works diligently to minimize impacts, you may notice increased noise, traffic, 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.
