LYNCHBURG, Va. (WFXR) — The Main Street Renewal Project in downtown Lynchburg is progressing faster than originally planned.
The estimated completion date has moved from fall 2021 to summer 2021.
In the latest phase of the project, Appalachian Power crews will replace the concrete top of an underground vault at the intersection of Fifth and Main Streets, beginning Monday, Dec. 2.
The construction is expected to take two weeks to complete.
Motorists are asked to drive slowly and follow directions from flaggers near the construction site. Access to the Academy Center for the Arts should not be affected by the construction, said the city.
The work is “a joint venture between the City of Lynchburg and to upgrade downtown Lynchburg’s underground utility infrastructure and restore each block with update streetscape features,” according to a city statement.
