This project includes the construction of approximately 12,000 feet of new 24-inch diameter water main along Braddock Road and Campus Drive on the George Mason University (GMU) campus as shown on the map below. The new water main will be located entirely within Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) right-of-way and on GMU property.
During construction, traffic will be maintained in both directions on Braddock Road at all times, although temporary lane closures will be required at times. Work hours on Braddock Road will be limited to 9:30 am to 3:00 pm, Monday through Thursday and 9:30 pm to 2 pm on Friday. Construction on the GMU West Campus will require intermittent detours of Campus Drive. Construction of the project will last for approximately one year.
Construction activities for October and November 2017:
- Installation of erosion & sedimentation controls
- Pipe installation to begin on the GMU property late November
