Portsmouth Public Utilities Work on Constitution Avenue

Residents,

Many of you have been wondering about the utilities work on Constitution Avenue.

I spoke with Brian Foster at Portsmouth Public Utilities at 393 8691, ext 2192.

The situation with the sewer pipes in this area has been longstanding.  I am sure that you have seen the Department of Public Utilities vehicles “bubbling out” this area of the neighborhood.  Now, the situation has become worse, causing the collapse of part of the street and necessitating the pumping machine to be on 24/7.

All of this is due to aging infrastructure and begs for a permanent solution.

The final bids to correct the total problem on Constitution Avenue were due in yesterday (April 8th).  During the next few weeks, a contractor will be chosen. We will have notification before work begins and advanced notice of any time the water will be shut off.  The project may take up to 4 months.

This will cause some disruption, but the ultimate result will be a long-term solution vs. the piecemeal repairs that last only a few years.

Your Civic League will continue to keep you informed as the start date comes closer.  We will have direct contact to project managers and have a commitment from Mr. Foster that his department will keep in close contact with the neighborhood via the Civic League.

Best regards,

Bruce Bremer, President
Shea Terrace Civic League

Stay tuned for more details.

Snowfall 2014

2014 is getting off to a big start with two snowfall events in under a week. Many Shea Terrace residents have been holed up in their homes, hoping for warmer temps to begin melting the 8″-10″ of snow that fell Tuesday night (Jan 28th). True to form in the Hampton Roads region, we will go from record lows on Thursday to 60+ degrees by the weekend, giving us the much-desired warming to get this snow gone!

Civic League President, Bruce Bremer and wife (and former Civic League President), Anne, took these two photos depicting the enormity of this snow event.

We look forward to receiving more photos from our fellow Shea Terrace neighbors, and will update this post as they come in. Stay tuned….
