Beginning Monday, November 4 and continuing for approximately six months, the elevator in the Lynchburg City Armory, 1219 Main Street, will be demolished and a new elevator will be installed. Workers may begin installing scaffolding as early as this week.
Due to the location of the elevator, the sidewalk between the Lynchburg Community Market and the rear of the Lynchburg Visitor's Center will be closed for the duration of the project.
Pedestrians will be able to use the stairway from 12th Street as well as the Main Street entrance to gain access to the Lynchburg Community Market. The main entrance of the City Armory will remain open for access inside the building, including the Central Virginia Criminal Justice Academy.
