Beginning Friday, November 9 at 7 AM, weather depending, the intersection of Commerce Street and Ninth Street will be temporarily closed until further notice. An underground water main break has been detected in the intersection and crews for Lynchburg Water Resources need to excavate the intersection in order to locate and repair the break. If it is raining on Friday, the closure will be postponed to Saturday morning, November 10, at 7 AM. The closure will remain in place until crews have fully repaired the break and restored the street for vehicle traffic.
All parking garages and parking lots with entrances off of Commerce Street and Ninth Street will maintain access at all times; however no street parking will be allowed in the blocks immediately surrounding the intersection. Additionally, Ninth Street between Main Street and Commerce Street will be closed to all traffic, including Emergency Services.
