Rescheduled due to weather If you plan to be in Riverview Park on Wednesday, February 25, be on the alert for blasting at the existing Rivanna Pump Station located at the entrance to park (intersection of Chesapeake St. and Riverside Ave). A single blast is anticipated mid-day. Crews will be working on the 16th to drill holes in preparation for the blast.


Vehicular and pedestrian traffic will be temporarily stopped on the adjacent roads, trails, and at the park entrance in the vicinity around the pump station at the 5-minute warning horn/siren before the blast. There will be another horn/siren sounded right before the blast, and then a prolonged horn/siren following the blast when the blaster has confirmed the site is all clear and then normal traffic patterns will resume. Please note that the park will not be closed.

Several seismographs will be set up in the Woolen Mills neighborhood to gather vibration data.  We appreciate your cooperation to adhere to all signage and personnel regarding blasting for your SAFETY!
