Terminal Blvd resurfacing to begin in June

April 26, 2016

The entirety of Terminal Blvd will be resurfaced beginning in June.  The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2016.  During that time we can expect increased traffic on area roadways including W. Little Creek Road.

From the VDOT website:

The Terminal Boulevard Resurfacing Project includes:

  • Rubblization of existing concrete pavement, with an overlay of 6″ of asphalt pavement
  • Adjustments to affected drop inlets, bringing them up to the grade of the new roadway, as well as building new curbs
  • Removal and replacement of existing guardrail
  • Tie into existing grade at Ruthaven Road and Diven Street intersections to avoid impacts to railroad
  • Removal and replacement of damaged stormwater pipes
