Stormwater Pipe Replacement: William Street, 100 Block

Traffic Alert (2)

Replacement of the William Street storm water system, between Caroline and Sophia Street, began in early August. Ashburn Contracting Corporation (ACC) has been awarded the contract to install the system designed by The Timmons Group. 

ACC will complete the project in phases. The Sophia Street intersection is part of the first phase of the project to be finished before Chatham Bridge completion. The final phase will conclude the first week of November, 2021. Three of the four project phases are designed to occur during evening/overnight hours. The contractor is scheduled to continue to excavate and place concrete manhole and pipe structures at the Sophia / William Street intersection.  Day time replacement of the piping along the 100 block of William Street will occur after the Sophia / William Street night work completes placement of manhole and pipe structures.

All traffic in this vicinity will experience detours beginning August thru November. Parking may be temporarily impacted during construction. Alternate parking includes the parking deck located on Wolfe Street between Sophia and Caroline, the first 4 hours are free (then a dollar each additional hour). 

Construction will accommodate customer traffic, businesses in the proximity to the construction are not anticipated to experience prolonged interruptions. Access to businesses remains a critical objective during this project. 

Properties along the 100 block of William Street and adjacent the intersections of Caroline and Sophia Streets will experience construction- principally within the road and curbing during realignment of concrete piping. Renovation of roof / sump drain connections to stormwater may occur along portions of City sidewalk. City Public Works staff Scott Rae is a project manager, interest concerning the project may be emailed to asrae@fredericksburgva.gov or call (540) 372-1023.
