Lynchburg Midtown Connector
The Midtown Connector project, completed in fall of 2016, is a major accomplishment from the City’s Comprehensive Plan 2002-2020, providing improved access to Lynchburg General Hospital and midtown Lynchburg, while improving area streets with new sidewalks, crossings, lighting, and street trees. The purpose of this project was to revitalize the corridor through the City which is the main route to the hospital and other medical services. This was an urban project which replaced existing water and sewer lines, curb & gutter, sidewalks, widened the existing roadway and added an additional lane, while providing a total new pavement structure.
In 2009, NXL provided full surveying services for the Midtown Connector Project at Craddock Street, the waterline extensions at 16th and 8th streets, Langhorne Road extension and Murrell Avenue, and the SWM Basin area. Services included: reconnaissance of existing project control, establishment of horizontal and vertical control, location of right-of-way and property lines, property and plan research, over 120 acquisition/easement plats, location and elevation of topographic features, and drainage and utility surveys. NXL also conducted road cross-sections, property line staking, and incorporated data into a DTM.
Using VDOT CADD standards, NXL provided the following deliverables: 2-D Planimetric File, Survey Baselines and Control Data, Utility File and Digital Terrain Model.

NXL also provided Construction Inspection and Construction Management on this project for the QC Inspection team. Our CM monitors the NXL CEI budget as well as the City project budget.

Additional features of this project included Construction of additional turn lanes, pavement widening, a roundabout, median islands and new sidewalks. Also, new curb and gutter, storm sewers and utilities, installation of storm water management basin, new traffic signals, and landscaping improvements.
