The Chesapeake Department of Public Works provides important public services to citizens, residents and travelers. Everyone within the City is somehow by Public Works, whether it's traveling on a City roadway, crossing a bridge, disposing of refuse, or using many of the other municipal services. The Department has been accredited by the American Public Works Association since September 2006 and was re-accredited in November 2018.
The Centerville Turnpike Bridge reopens to vehicle traffic ahead of schedule on Saturday, February 15 at 7 a.m. Additional weekend closures of the bridge will be required in the coming months, and dates will be posted as they are scheduled via www.cityofchesapeake.net/centerville.
Replacing the bridge will improve traffic flow, meet Virginia Department of Transportation and City of Chesapeake requirements, and comes at a time in which road improvements are being made to either side of the bridge.
The City of Chesapeake has negotiated a five-month interim contract with Tidewater Fiber Corporation (TFC) to continue providing curbside recycling to eligible households through June 30, 2020, which is the end of the City’s fiscal year. There are no changes to residential curbside recycling collection during this period, and the program will continue on its normal schedule. Additionally, the popular Recycling Perks incentive program will be continued as part of the agreement. Continuation of recycling collection into the next fiscal year is still being reviewed as part of the City’s Operating Budget development. Further updates will be provided as they become available.
