LYNCHBURG, Va. (WFXR) – Work continues on the Midtown Parking Deck in Downtown Lynchburg.
Work has been completed on Phase One and work on Phase Two is nearing completion. Work on Phase Three (deck levels A & B) is expected to start on Tuesday, August 13th, weather permitting.
Phase Three is expected to take several weeks.
The final phase will close the alley way off Main Street as well as the ramps to levels B, C and D for a short period of time to allow for waterproofing efforts of these areas and the curing time necessary to the process. Officials say that every effort is being made to reduce the amount of time for this process and to lessen the impact to users of the deck.
The project will also consist of structural and safety repairs, including repairs to the concrete cracks, joints, railings and steel columns followed by resurfacing and coating, masonry repairs and re-striping of the decks. A number of spaces will need to be blocked as repair work progresses on each level.
Parking Management is working to find alternate parking options for permit holders, should it become necessary to relocate vehicles.
Lynchburg City Officials apologizes for any inconvenience.
