  1. Upcoming County Roadway / Bridge Projects
  2. Future Projects Currently Under Design & Development

Center Street (C.R. 603) and New Street (C.R. 629) Intersection Improvements

The County of Gloucester will be performing paving on Center Street for approximately 700 feet on either side of the New Street intersection to improve the curve in the roadway.  South State Inc. will be performing the paving. The project will consist of milling a portion of the road down to the existing roadway under the asphalt paving and in the transition areas as needed.  The road will then be paved to create a super-elevated curve through the intersection with variable depth base paving and 2 inches of a new asphalt surface course. This variable depth base paving will require several layers to achieve the final grade.  Existing drainage inlets will be reset to match the new grades. The paving will begin on Monday, January 11th, weather permitting. Driveway aprons will also be replaced to accommodate the changes in elevation of the road. The roadway will be detoured during construction but will allow the residents access to driveways.  The detour on Center Street will be lifted at the end of each work day. New Street at Center Street will remained closed if necessary.  The project will begin construction on Monday, January 11, 2021, with the milling and base paving operations.  We anticipate three days for milling, paving and driveway aprons, weather permitting.  The hours of the project operation will commence at 7:00 AM and end at 4:00 PM.
