To improve the existing drinking water system in the Crozet service area, the Rivanna Water and Sewer Authority, in a joint effort with the Albemarle County Service Authority, will replace 4,700 feet of waterline along Three Notched Road (Rt. 240) in Crozet. Construction will occur approximately from Union Mission Lane to Park Ridge Drive and will last 6 to 7 months.
The project will provide additional flow capacity. A new 16-inch diameter ductile iron waterline will replace two antiquated lines currently serving the area. The old lines will be abandoned in place, and new fire hydrants will be installed.
Due to existing right-of-way limits, much of the new line will be installed within existing asphalt pavement, which will require flagging operations and minor traffic delays during daytime hours. Traffic lane closures and flagging operations started in early August.
The contractor hired for the project is Linco, Inc., the contractor for the downtown Crozet streetscape project.
