Lawrence Dr Reopens - Lawrence Access to ARC Closes

Effective April 4: JLab Entrance at Lawrence Dr. Reopens; Lawrence Access to ARC Closes

The current phase of work on the Hampton Roads Sanitation District 30-inch sewer main under Lawrence Drive will be completed this week.  Detour signage is being installed to allow work to commence on the next phase that will start next week. 

Beginning some time on Monday, April 4, the Jefferson Lab entrance at Lawrence Drive and Jefferson Avenue will reopen.  On this same date the Lawrence Drive entrance to the ARC – from Hogan Drive – will be closed.  

For about six weeks, Lawrence Drive will be closed from Hogan Drive south beyond Pauli Drive.  This will allow for installation of the new sewer main under this section of Lawrence Drive.

During this time, all traffic will enter and exit Jefferson Lab via the Jefferson Avenue entrance at Lawrence to Kelvin Drive, or down Hogan Drive and then to Hofstadter Road or Rattley Road.

Please follow the posted detour signs.

A map showing the excavation/work area and detour routes may be viewed here. The hash-marked area over Lawrence Drive indicates where the road will be closed for this phase.

The Jefferson Lab Site Plan map is posted online at:

All construction is scheduled to be completed by early July.  This includes repaving Lawrence Drive, Pauli Drive, and Rattley Road.
