At the April GNL meeting the folks from the City, HRSD and Virginia Natural Gas provided an update to the construction on-going throughout Ghent. The good news is most areas of the neighborhood are getting updated water, gas and sewer lines which should improve service and reliability. Some of the infrastructure is over 80 years old. The bad news is that this is going to be a long process, with construction extending in some form through this time next year. The streets effected will be repaved with a temporary covering after the construction and then will be replaced with a final layer of asphalt 18 months later. This allows time for the systems to be verified and the ground to settle.
Links to Norfolk Department of Utilities and HRSD are on the side bar and provide links to updated project information. Flyers providing status of the gas and water were posted earlier.
As these efforts move forward, if you should have any questions, comments or concerns the your central point of contact with the City regarding these projects is Freda Burns – (757) 664-7216. Mrs. Burns is the coordinator and can deal with issues which may arise with any of the contractors or utility providers.
