VDOT Lesner Bridge Replacement Project Overview page:

The purpose of the Lesner Bridge Replacement Project is to replace a structurally deficient and functionally obsolete bridge. As part of this project, there is also an opportunity to make safety improvements for the traveling public crossing the bridge (automobile, pedestrian and bicycle) and to enhance the aesthetics, open space, landscape and architecture of the Shore Drive Corridor.

7.063.000: Neighborhood SW Infrastructure Improvements-Ph. I

    This project corrects drainage problems in various established neighborhoods and other areas that fall beyond the scope of normal maintenance, but do not meet the criteria to stand as a separate CIP project. New projects are added to the needs list each year based on reported flooding problems and field maintenance reports. Some projects may be subject to jurisdictional wetlands regulations.

Dredging

There could be dredge spoils sites accepting public and private waste from any where in the Lynnhaven Watershed at 21 locations, Lynnhaven Boat Ramp & Beach Facility, and Maple Street in Cape Story

Remember the beloved Lynnhaven Boat Ramp & Beach Facility plan to receive unknown and unlimited dredge spoils from the entire Lynnhaven Watershed was officially killed in 2009?

The idea is back on the table.

Start here to learn more and to click one link to email City Council, Beaches & Waterways Commission, Bayfront Advisory Committee, and Shore Drive Community Coalition in opposition to this insane idea:

“The Assistant City Manager and City Staff were there to present plans for the Lesner Bridge replacement AND Building a Permanent Industrial Site at Crab Creek.”

    UPDATE: City of Virginia Beach filed a Joint Permit Application with VMRC.

Resolution to take Maple Street off the table as a dredge spoils transfer station at SDCC.info.

City Council unanimously passes Resolution to take Maple Street off the table. Link at SDCC.info.

  4. Where can I find information about the beach sand restoration project going on just east of the Lynnhaven pier?

  5. I’m not sure where it was being trucked from. Last week big dump trucks were bringing the sand to the Oak St beach access and dumping it in a large pile on the beach. From there, a large loader was putting it into other dump trucks that were bringing it along the shore, dumping it along the shore, working from east to west. I was very impressed by how professional the whole job was being done and was wondering who was running the operation.

    • That’s great! Yes – it is coming from the beloved Lynnhaven Boat Ramp & believe it’s related to the needed dredging so the barges for the bridge construction can work there.

  6. How about some replacement lights on the eastbound bridge. I walked it last night and a good many of the lights were dim or out of order. With that as the only pedestrian access it should be well lighted.

  7. Community Rating System and My Bucks
    Cities that elect to participate in the Community Rating System (CRS) are eligible to receive discounts in the subscriber’s National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) premiums. Those discounts range from 5% to a maximum of 45% of the subscribers premiums per year. As our flood insurance premiums are going up this year, in some case very significantly, it would be to our benefit if the city participated in the CRS program. The program helps those in flood hazard areas to better understand, prepare and possibly mitigate potential losses due to storm flooding. If you live in the Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA, the “100 year flood plain”) and are required by your mortgage banker to buy NFIP flood insurance, you can participate in the CRS, IF the city elects to join. The city staff has prepared for City Council presentation the briefing on the particulars on the CRS. SDCC should learn shortly how the CRS program briefing was received by council members and whether they voted to participate or not in the program. I am waiting to learn how my flood insurance premiums and bucks will be impacted now and in the future.
