As a complement to Phase I of the Jefferson Avenue Streetscape Project, from 35th to 25th Streets, Engineering has been coordinating with Planning, Development and the Newport News Redevelopment and Housing Authority, as well as the engineering consulting firm Atkins North America, to design the second phase of the Jefferson Avenue Streetscape Project. The second phase, from 25th to 12th Streets, proposes similar improvements to Jefferson Avenue which include the installation of new landscaping, replacements and upgrades to sidewalks and ADA-compliant ramps, water, sanitary sewer and stormwater pipe rehabilitation and replacement where required, consolidation of existing utilities and upgrades to street lighting.

To address questions from the public regarding Phase II of the Jefferson Avenue Streetscape Project, a public information session was hosted by the City’s Engineering Department on October 9th, at the Boys & Girls Club located at Jefferson and Hampton Avenues.
