Update: Sanitary Sewer Repairs Continue Along Portion of Kempsville Road in Chesapeake


CHESAPEAKE - The right and center southbound lanes on Kempsville Road from Volvo Parkway to just south of Hunningdon Lakes Boulevard remain closed for emergency repairs to the sanitary sewer force main in that area. The left southbound lane remains open to through traffic.

As a precaution, residents in the Greenbrier East neighborhood should continue to avoid contact and use of the waters from the stormwater retention ponds located within that neighborhood until further notice.

During pipeline restoration and repairs, HRSD will be pumping and hauling flow to nearby pump stations. During this 24-hour a day operation, the following neighborhoods will experience increased noise and truck traffic:

• Alden Square
• Hunningdon Woods
• Hunningdon Lakes
• Kemp Woods
• Norcova Estates
• Wynngate Place

While our project team works diligently around the clock to correct this issue and minimize its impacts, you may experience some traffic delays, odor and noise associated with construction. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience.

Additional updates will be posted to the HRSD Newsroom. Updates will also be posted to your communities’ Nextdoor feed.

A political subdivision of the Commonwealth of Virginia, HRSD was created by public referendum in 1940 and currently serves 18 cities and counties in southeast Virginia, an area with a population of 1.7 million.
