West Virginia National Cemetery Expansion

Home > Projects > Cemetery Projects > West Virginia National Cemetery Expansion

Carter van Dyke Associates was the prime consultant for a 57-acre expansion project at West Virginia National Cemetery.  The project included a new loop roadway system, a new committal shelter and 5,000 grave expansion program. Of the 5,000 graves, 1,000 were pre-placed, pre-cast concrete crypts.  The area designed for the new crypts required the removal of a +/- 6-foot seam of coal.  The steeply sloping site required that the road design follow the grades.  In the area of the new committal shelter, an 800-foot long double side modular concrete retaining wall was required.
For the project, CVDA selected local surveying, engineering and geotechnical sub-consultants.  CVDA originally designed a new landscape design plan for the cemetery prior to the initiation of the expansion project.
