The City of Richmond Department of Public Utilities invites residents and commuters who utilize areas around Libbie Avenue and Cary Street Road to attend a public meeting to learn more about the sanitary sewer replacement project currently impacting traffic in the area.

The meeting is being held on Tuesday, February 28, from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. in St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church’s large fellowship hall located at 6000 Grove Avenue. Work will occur in the 1st Council District along the 0 block of Libbie Avenue and the 5400-5500 block of Cary Street Road in the Stonewall Court and Lockgeen neighborhoods.

City officials and DPU project managers will provide details on the area’s sewer improvement project to replace deteriorating sewer mains which are at risk of imminent failure.
