Grove Area

Drainage and Roadway Improvements - April 2019

Scope of Work

This project proposes to widen existing travel lanes to the minimum standard for sections of the road network within the Grove residential neighborhood and to address historic drainage and flooding issues in the area. The project addresses deficient pavement width through the addition of new asphalt pavement and alleviates roadway drainage issues by reestablishing ditch grades and driveway culverts. In addition, new storm drain pipes will be installed to increase flow capacity under roads and to connect ditches that do not have an existing outfall or are very poorly drained. Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) Revenue Sharing funds have been applied for to help fund the project.
