Chesterfield Utilities is committed to keeping its neighbors informed of projects that will impact the community. To provide a more reliable, potable water supply, Utilities will be replacing and upsizing portions of the watermain on Hopkins Road to Route 1. This includes parts of Falling Creek Circle, Cardwell Road, Castlewood Road, Falling Creek Avenue, Goolsby Avenue and Tyrone Street. The Utilities team is currently working to advertise this project for bid in Spring 2023.
The waterline project consists of two separate segments totaling approximately 10,500 linear feet of new 16-inch ductile iron pipe with all new materials. This includes replacement of water service lines and meter boxes. Typically the new meter and service will be reconnected to existing private service lines.
Most of the construction on the streets mentioned above will occur within the public right-of-way, causing occasional interruptions of normal traffic patterns in nearby subdivisions. Construction is estimated to being in Fall 2023 and take approximately 15 months to complete. During this period, water supply to our customers will be occasionally interrupted when reconnections occur to the new waterline. Notice will be provided prior to planned service interruptions. Utilities is committed to making this project a success for the community and will have inspection staff on-site who can assist with questions and concerns.
For any questions, contact DJ Messer, principal utility inspector, by email or by calling 804-768-7354, or Tim Easter, PE, engineering supervisor, by email or by calling 804-796-7125.
