Public Utilities will be installing a new sanitary sewer drain line at 2220 Albuquerque Drive.  The sewer main is located in the middle of the street, and is quite deep.  Public Utilities will need to close Albuquerque Drive to thru traffic during construction.

The date of the work and road closure has not yet been scheduled, but may be within the next week or two.  Variable Message Sign Boards will be placed in the area in advanced of the work letting residents know when work will begin.  The detour route will be marked, see attached traffic control plan  for sign and detour layout.

Vehicles Vandalized Around Va Beach

Written By: LMCL - Dec• 20•14

Police have been noticing vandalism of vehicles parked on the streets in neighborhoods all around Virginia Beach.  LMCL encourages residents to park in driveways or garages to avoid vandalism.  In addition, be sure to ALWAYS LOCK YOUR VEHICLE and do not leave valuables in sight.

All crime and suspicious activity should be reported to police, no matter how small — it does make a difference.  VB Police have a non-emergency number 385-5000.

Our collective diligence and watchful eyes will keep Lago Mar the neighborhood that it is.
