Sentara Obici Hospital’s parking lots and access roads are in the midst of a $1 million repaving this summer.

It’s the first time since the hospital opened in 2000 that they have been repaved. Blair Brothers Paving of Suffolk is doing the work, which involves milling two inches off the old surface and laying down more than 7,800 tons of new and recycled asphalt on 71,000-square-yards of parking lots,” according to Sentara Healthcare spokesman Dale Gauding.

There will also be fresh, new striping to clearly mark parking spaces, crosswalks and wayfinding aids for safety. Some of the decorative pavers that have shifted out of place over the years due to repeated freezing and thawing, and that have created a trip hazard, will be removed.
