Lynchburg & Central Virginia News

LYNCHBURG, Va. (WFXR) – Starting June 1, the 1000 block of Main Street between Tenth and Eleventh Streets will close to through-traffic to accommodate road rebuilding.

The closure is expected to last through Friday, June 18.

The road will undergo demolition before crews install stone base and base asphalt.

Once complete, final pavement and striping will be performed.

Starting Thursday, June 3 and continuing through Monday, June 7, Ninth Street between Commerce and Main Streets, will be closed to through-traffic to accommodate installation of historic block in the intersection.

After two days, crews will move to the opposite side of Ninth Street between Church and Main Streets, and close that portion to through-traffic.

Loading zones, on-street parking, parking lot S and deck access will remain open.

A single lane of Main Street will be open through the intersection for the duration of the work.

Crews will be actively working on the roadway and motorists are asked to drive slowly through the construction area.

A complete shut-down of each of the two remaining city blocks on Main Street is scheduled for later this spring and early summer to rebuild the road and install final paving as the project nears completion in the fall.

  • The 900 block of Main Street closure is planned for late-June and into early-July.
  • Full closure of the 1100 block is planned for August and September.
