THE LOUISE AND GEORGE LYON MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP

Completed application deadline is March 2019.

The Lyons were lifelong members of the Ocean Park Civic League and dedicated a good portion of their free time to serving the community in which they lived. They were especially committed to supporting the Ocean Park Volunteer Rescue Squad which was the first, all voluntary, rescue squad established in Virginia Beach and which is still in operation today on Shore Drive.

Each year the Ocean Park Civic League awards a scholarship to a deserving high school senior who will attend a postsecondary institution in Virginia.

If you are a senior or have a senior in your household, it is never too early to start thinking about and applying for scholarships. The scholarship is $1000 per year for up to four years as long as the student maintains the required GPA. The criteria include academic record, service to the community and letters of recommendation.

Mail complete application by March 31, 2019 to:

“Therefore, beginning at approximately 1:00 PM and ending some time near 10:00 PM on 10/25/2018 expect East Stratford Road to be CLOSED between Piedmont Circle and Shore Drive and Piedmont Circle to be CLOSED between East Stratford Road and the showers at Lynnhaven Boat Ramp while paving operations are underway.”

From an email:

Folks:

As with every project where there are many players, schedules change – this one is NO EXCEPTION. Some of the paving work that was supposed to have been completed last night wasn’t; therefore, our paving schedule for tomorrow has changed a bit.

Here are the details:

Beginning tomorrow, 10/25/2018 at approximately 9:00 AM and ending at approximately 12:30 PM, the final course of pavement will be placed on Vista Circle between Shore Drive and Cape Henry Drive, as well as Cape Henry Drive from Vista Circle to the entrance to Bubba’s Restaurant. This work will require intermittent street closures of both Vista Circle and Cape Henry Drive, so please plan accordingly.

Paving crews will move to the west side of the bridge (East Stratford Road) immediately after paving is completed on Cape Henry Drive.

Paving work on East Stratford Road and Piedmont Circle will begin tomorrow, Thursday 10/25/2018 at approximately 1:00PM. Therefore, beginning at approximately 1:00 PM and ending some time near 10:00 PM on 10/25/2018 expect East Stratford Road to be CLOSED between Piedmont Circle and Shore Drive and Piedmont Circle to be CLOSED between East Stratford Road and the showers at Lynnhaven Boat Ramp while paving operations are underway. Paving crews will also attempt to pave the RIGHT TURN lane on eastbound Shore Drive at East Stratford Road (the one in front of J&A Racing) during this same time period.

Finally, on Friday 10/26/2018, expect single lane closures on both eastbound and westbound Shore Drive between Vista Circle and East Stratford Road between the hours of 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM. On eastbound Shore Drive crews will be placing the permanent pavement markings on the asphalt pavement between East Stratford Road and Vista Circle. On westbound Shore Drive crews will be working on sidewalk and utility work along the north side of Shore Drive.

We will continue to provide updates on anticipated lane/street closures as we near the final stages of this work.

PLEASE Drive Carefully through this work zone as we complete this work.

Sincerely,
-Chris

Update about jackhammering & paving by Lesner Bridge & LBR&BF on East Stratford & Shore Drive.

From an email:

Folks:

Hopefully everyone has been enjoying the new eastbound Lesner Bridge since its opening on Labor Day weekend. First of all, I want to apologize to all of you who live in Ocean Park that endured the noise from road work on East Stratford Road in the early morning hours of Monday 10/22 and Tuesday 10/23. Several lines of communication within the project team were broken and resulted in not just one night of disturbance, but two. For that we sincerely apologize to everyone affected.

We scheduled this night time work on East Stratford Road to minimize the disruption of operations of the Lynnhaven Boat Ramp and American Brew. However, in order to minimize the night time noise created by this milling and paving work, we are going to complete the paving work on East Stratford Road and Piedmont Circle during the day on Thursday 10/25/2018. Therefore, beginning at approximately 9:00 AM and ending some time near 6:00 PM on 10/25/2018 expect East Stratford Road to be CLOSED between Piedmont Circle and Shore Drive and Piedmont Circle to be CLOSED between East Stratford Road and the showers at Lynnhaven Boat Ramp while paving operations are underway.

Piedmont Circle Closure at Lynnhaven Boat Ramps for October 25, 2018
Piedmont Circle Closure at East Stratford Road for October 25, 2018
East Stratford Road Closure for October 25, 2018

Paving work is also taking place TONIGHT, 10/23/2018. Beginning tonight about 8:00 PM and lasting until 5:00 AM, road crews will be preparing to place the final asphalt surface course on eastbound Shore Drive located between the bridge and Vista Circle. This paving work will also include the intersection of Shore Drive and Vista Circle, Vista Circle between Shore Drive and Cape Henry Drive, and Cape Henry Drive between Vista Circle and the entrance to Bubba’s Restaurant.

Another update will be sent out once we have a firm schedule for the upcoming paving work for westbound Shore Drive between Page Avenue and East Stratford Road.

Thank you all again for your patience as we push through the final stages of this multi-year project.

Sincerely,
-Chris
