LYNCHBURG, Va. (WFXR) – A section of Main Street in Lynchburg will shut down for several hours on Monday, Oct. 11 as crews pour concrete as part of the Main Street Renewal Project.
Starting at 2 a.m. Monday morning, Main Street will be blocked to traffic between 11th and 12th Streets – including the 12th Street intersection.
Work is expected to take approximately 12 hours.
The work is necessary due to the high demand and the large amount of concrete needed for the Arrival Pad which is a geometric pattern of street pavers in the roadway and the sidewalk over two-thirds of a city block.
“This is a huge endeavor and will require over 230 cubic yards of concrete and 20 trucks to deliver the materials over 12 hours. We apologize to the public in advance for the overnight disturbance; however, the final product will be worth it.”Jim Talian, Special Projects Manager for the City of Lynchburg
The Main Street Renewal Project is a multi-million dollar joint investment between the City of Lynchburg and Appalachian Power to replace aging water lines, update certain sanitary and storm systems and modernize the underground electrical system to improve reliability and provide for future development.
