VCU has contracted with Giant Maintenance and Restoration to sandblast, prime and paint almost 1,000 fire hydrants throughout the City. All the hydrants will be sandblasted and then painted a primer gray which will need to cure for 24 hours before applying the final safety yellow finishing coat.
In 2019, 501 hydrants were primed and painted beginning at Highway 30 moving north to Evans Avenue. This season we will prime and paint 512 fire hydrants beginning at Evans Avenue and heading north to City limits. An additional 447 hydrants in outlying subdivisions will also receive an update.
Please see the attached maps for detailed locations.
