water main replacement on academy street

Academy Street is currently under construction.  The VCU Collections & Distribution crews are replacing 800' of aging water main between Park Avenue and the north end of Academy Street.  Existing lead services will be replaced and 2 new fire hydrants installed.

Plans to separate the combined storm sewer drain in this area and replace it with separate sewer and storm sewer infrastructure are in the design phase. Once this infrastructure is in place, crews will repave the street and install new curbs to the neighborhood.
