Hume Avenue Bypass project
The Hume Avenue Bypass project will provide flood mitigation for residential homes fronting Hume Avenue. The main work is to install an alternate storm sewer along Hume Avenue to bypass the existing pipe in the backyards of the townhomes on the south side of Hume Avenue. Other work includes adding inlets on Dewitt Avenue, regrading Hume Avenue, raising the curb on both sides of Hume Avenue and installing a check valve under the parking lot of the Truist Bank at 2809 Mount Vernon Ave.
