Project Description

This project consists of the replacement of a water transmission main along Route 1 from the Garfield Booster Station (near the intersection of Route 1 and Neabsco Road) running south toward Fuller Heights Road. The purpose of this project is to increase transmission capacity from the Garfield Booster Station to southern portions of the Dumfries Pressure Zone, to improve system reliability and to meet customer demand.

Current Project Activities

Route 1, Phase 1

As part of this project phase, there will be single, right-lane closures in various locations along Route 1 from Wayside Drive to Neabsco Road. These closures will occur Monday through Friday, between 9:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., through the December 2022. Please follow traffic control signs and traffic cones when closures are in place.

The installation of the new 30“ watermain is progressing. Restoration of the asphalt has started and will continue for the next several months as the waterline and its various connections are completed.

Route 1, Phase 2

As part of this project phase, there will be periodic, single-lane closures on Old Triangle Road with traffic flaggers alternating traffic around the work area to allow tying in the new waterline to existing lines. When these closures occur, they will be from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Fridays. Please follow traffic control signs and flaggers’ direction when traveling through a closure.

The installation of the new 24” watermain is progressing. The installation of the main waterline on Old Triangle Road is complete. The contractor’s next step is to connect the new and existing waterlines. After theses connections are made, the restoration of the asphalt on Old Triangle Road will be completed. The Possum Point Road waterline is progressing. Once this section of waterline is complete and has been tested, the restoration of the asphalt on Possum Point Road will begin.
