UPDATE-October 2019: The Western Virginia Regional Industrial Facility Authority’s contractor EC Pace will soon undertake some mild, small-scale blasting operations on the north side of Wood Haven Road and grading operations as well as some drilling and hammering of rock on the south side to accommodate the installation of utilities. This process is being conducted by a highly experienced company holding industry certifications. This process is highly regulated and controlled including on-site monitoring by the Roanoke County Fire Marshal. It is expected that these operations will commence within the next few days and should be completed by mid-November. This is an example video of similar construction operations.
May 18-2018-Roanoke Gas will be making system improvements along the northern and western boundaries of the property that belongs to the Western Virginia Regional Industrial Facility Authority. Contractors will be doing limited clearing and boring necessary to connect existing natural gas lines on Wood Haven Road to a natural gas main on Loch Haven Drive. A 6 inch PVC distribution line, the kind used throughout much of the Roanoke Gas system, will run along the edge of the Western Virginia Regional Industrial Facility Authority property at standard system pressure and will connect to existing infrastructure on Wood Haven Road. This new connection will improve reliability and supply to surrounding residential users and support future development. Roanoke Gas will revegetate the narrow strip of land that is disturbed during the process.
