Utilities CIP Projects

Utilities Capital Improvement Program Projects

Chesterfield County, in accordance with state code and the County Charter, prepares a five-year Capital Improvement Program (CIP), which, while revised annually, is a long-term planning tool that guides the design, financing, construction and maintenance of public infrastructure. For Utilities projects, a 10-year CIP is developed.

Utilities projects are a vital component of the overall Chesterfield CIP and all projects are available to view in the Chesterfield County CIP dashboard. Additional details and information regarding the status of specific Utilities CIP projects are available on the corresponding tab. 

Gary, Meridian and Mistora Waterlines

Project Area

Chesterfield Utilities is committed to keeping its neighbors informed of projects that will impact the community. As part of our continual efforts to improve the reliability of our water distribution system, Utilities is installing and replacing waterlines in the neighborhoods bounded by Harrowgate Road on the west, Gary Avenue on the east, North Street on the north and a branch of Timsbury Creek on the south. Learn more on the Capital Improvement Program page.

The project will consist of the installation of 3,300 feet of 6-inch ductile iron waterline, 4,000 feet of 8-inch ductile iron waterline, and 1,000 feet of 12-inch ductile waterline replacing the existing waterlines Gary Avenue, Edgewood Drive, Meridian Avenue, and Mistora Road. 400 feet of new 6-inch ductile-iron waterline will be installed in Network Street. The project will install new fire hydrants, meter boxes and water service lines between the new meter box and the new waterline. The new service lines will be reconnected to the existing private service lines. The contractor for this project is Southern Construction and the project cost is $2,700,000.

Expected Timeline

Construction will occur within the public right-of-way which includes the street and a portion of front yards. There will be occasional traffic interruptions and water supply when connecting the new waterline and water services to the existing waterline and water services. Notice will be provided prior to planned service interruptions. A full-time county Utility inspector will be onsite for the duration of the project should residents have any questions.

This project began summer 2023 and will take approximately 15 months to complete.
