Blue Ridge Farms Utility Project


In 2012, the City of Lynchburg began upgrading water, sewer, and stormwater services in the Blue Ridge Farms neighborhood.

In Phase III, water and sewer, and stormwater improvements will be made on Timber Court, Ashbourne Drive, Craigmont Drive, and parts of Tunbridge Road and Ramsgate Lane. With over 7,500 linear feet of water, sewer, and stormwater rehabilitation and replacement, this project will replace aging infrastructure, increase fire protection, and increase water and sewer capacity in the area.

Important Information

  • Construction may cause temporary discolored water or low water pressure. If you experience discolored water, run cold water taps for 3 to 5 minutes, until water clears. If the water does not clear, contact Lynchburg Water Resources at 434-455-4250.

Traffic Plans

  • Residents will maintain access to their homes at all times.
  • The contractor will close streets on a block-by-block to maintain a safe work zone. No through traffic will be allowed in a closed area.
