June 17, 2022

Beginning the week of June 20 and continuing for approximately eight weeks, 7:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. weekdays only, the City of Lynchburg’s 16th Street Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) Separation Project will take place between Pierce Street and Fillmore Street. The work will consist of the installation of 400 feet of stormwater pipe, new storm inlets and a limited amount of sidewalk and curb replacements. 

A portion of 16th Street (from Pierce Street to Fillmore Street) will be closed to through traffic during this time; however, residents will have access to their homes, and emergency vehicles will have access at all times.
