South side of Old Dominion Drive from the Cherrydale Firehouse to North Thomas Street.
At its March 17, 2018, meeting, the County Board approved the contract to construct the missing link of sidewalk along the south side of Old Dominion Drive (Route 29) between North Thomas Street and Fire Station No. 3.
Construction is expected to begin in spring/summer 2018, with project completion anticipated in spring 2019.
In preparation for construction, underground utility adjustments will be performed in April 2018. While this utility work is being done, the curbside travel lane along eastbound Old Dominion Drive will be closed during weekday daytime hours.
