Bruce Avenue Drainage Project

City of Colonial Heights, Virginia

Bowman Consulting was selected by the City of Colonial Heights for the Phase III and IV drainage and utility improvement plans of the Bruce Avenue Drainage Improvements project. This project included approximately 6,500 linear feet of city streets. The scope of the project included complete water, sanitary sewer, and storm sewer replacement. The project also involved substantial excavation of the roadways within the ROW limits and rebuilding of new asphalt sections and curb and gutter. Street grades were adjusted in order to facilitate drainage. The project also includes converting an isolated stretch of gravel road into a paved street. Improvements were designed to minimize franchise utility impacts, ROW acquisition, and environmental impacts. Bowman Consulting also provided surveying services on this project. Complete construction documents were issued for the initial 2,000 linear feet and 70% design was provided for the remaining 4,500 linear feet. Construction of the initial 2,000 linear feet began in May 2015. The initial project cost is approximately $1.5 million and was completed in summer 2016. The total project cost is approximately $5.5 million with additional work to commence as funds become available.
