Norfolk Breaks Ground on $112M Coastal Resilience Project

NORFOLK, VA – Join us Friday, Feb. 28 at 10:30 a.m. at the Grandy Village Recreation Center, 3017 Kimball Terrace, for the groundbreaking of the $112 million Ohio Creek project. Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, Mayor Kenneth Cooper Alexander and city residents will come together to celebrate this transformational coastal resilience project for the Chesterfield Heights and Grandy Village neighborhoods.

The Ohio Creek Watershed Project is part of Norfolk’s Resilience Strategy and supports its three goals:

  • Designing a coastal community capable of dealing with the increased risk of flooding
  • Creating economic opportunity by advancing efforts to grow existing and new industry sectors
  • Advancing initiatives to connect communities, deconcentrate poverty and strengthen neighborhoods

After brief remarks inside the recreation center, a groundbreaking will take place outside, behind the building, on the site of the future resilience park.
