Water Main Replacements – Beginning Monday, April 12th, Public Works will be replacing existing water lines at Capistrano and Heather Drive and working subsequently on Terra Bella and San Marcos Streets. The proposed improvements will consist of new 8” ductile iron pipe water mains. The work is necessary due to the numerous breaks experienced on these lines over the past few years. The duration for this project is approximately ninety (90) days. Every effort will be made to minimize the impact to traffic and the inconvenience to homeowners along the affected corridor; however, intermittent lane closures will occur during the duration of this project. For more information regarding this project, please contact Mr. Johnny Beane at 540 961-1144

Sidewalk Rehabilitation – Public Works will be replacing the existing west sidewalk on Preston Avenue from Eheart Street to Eakin Street and Progress Street from Virginia to McDonald Streets next week. The proposed improvements will consist of a five foot wide sidewalk, curb ramps, driveway improvements, and restoration of existing property. Funds for these projects come from a 50% revenue share with the Virginia Department of Transportation. These projects each have an anticipated duration of up to two weeks. Be advised that pedestrian traffic will be detoured to the opposite sidewalk during construction and parking will be restricted within the limits of construction. If you would like further information regarding these projects, please contact Mr. John Boyer at 540 449-8061.

Curb Ramps – Curb ramps are now complete on Hunt Club Road, Giles Road, Gracelyn Court, and Hemlock Drive within the limits of road resurfacing for these streets this summer. Curb ramps were constructed where there were no existing curb ramps and where 6-inch curbs presented barriers to entry for handicap accessibility. As a priority, missing curb ramps will be identified with resurfacing projects in an effort to systematically address curb ramp needs throughout Town over the coming years. If you are aware of additional locations throughout Town that require accommodation, please contact the Public Works Department at 540 961-1142.
