Huxley Place Sewer Extension



HRSD, your regional wastewater treatment utility, in coordination with the City of Newport News, is planning a project in your neighborhood to replace the existing HRSD and City sanitary sewer pipelines and public sewer service connections that are nearing the end of their useful life. This replacement project will also improve the system’s performance and ensure continued, reliable sewer service in the future. The answers to some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) are provided here.

Project Overview
The project is located in the neighborhood surrounding Huxley Place from the Carnegie Drive intersection to the northern end of Huxley Place near City Center Boulevard and at certain locations along Alpine Street and Warwick Boulevard. This project includes pipelines, manholes, as well as some public water service and sewer service lateral pipes. Theses pipes will be repaired or replaced within the city right-of-way. The owner of any private sewer service pipe that is found in need of repair, will be contacted. The contractor will maintain a clean job site and minimize traffic disruption.

Project Schedule
Staging: September 2019
Construction: Phase 1: (work within the public right-of-way along Huxley Place) Fall 2019 - Fall 2020
Phase 2: (work within the public right-of-way along Alpine Street and Warwick Boulevard) Fall 2020
