Eastern Shore Drive – Phase I

​Extensive drainage improvements are planned for the area surrounding eastern Shore Drive, from First Landing Park on the east to Lynnhaven Inlet on the west. The ultimate drainage service area extends to the north and south of Shore Drive to serve surrounding neighborhoods.  This area was originally developed without a comprehensive stormwater management system (pipes, outfalls, etc.), and as a result, has been impacted by repetitive street flooding during rainfall events over the years.  A large portion of the developed drainage basin is relatively low in elevation and is subjected to tidal inundation during storm events with higher tides. These projects will help to reduce flooding due to rainfall, tides, and a combination ​of both.
