Board of Supervisors Approve Improvements to Hollymead Dam

Posted: Updated:

Plans for improvements to the Hollymead Dam have received the go-ahead from the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors.

At the meeting on Thursday, July 5, supervisors approved the consent agenda, which included the application that will be sent to the Virginia Department of Transportation to close the road over the spillway.

The project calls for plans that will make the backside of the dam stronger in the event of water overflowing the dam during a super storm.

Construction on the project is expected to start by fall 2018.
