Pacific Avenue to receive multi-million dollar makeover

Posted at 8:14 AM, Sep 29, 2014

Virginia Beach, Va. - A major infrastructure project will soon get underway on Pacific Avenue at the Oceanfront.

This $8.9 million project will focus on decluttering Pacific Avenue between 17th Street and 22nd Street.

Crews will begin later today, removing power poles and utility lines on the east side of the street and burying them on the west side. Water and sewer lines will also be replaced.

According to the project manager, crews will only be working in the off-season, possibly lasting until April.

While Pacific Avenue is under construction, workers urge drivers to use alternate routes like Atlantic Avenue or Arctic Avenue.
