900 Block of Main Street to Temporarily Close

June 11, 2021

Beginning Tuesday, June 22 and continuing through Thursday, July 8, the 900 block of Main Street, between Ninth Street and Tenth Street, will close to through-traffic to accommodate road rebuilding operations as part of the Main Street Renewal Project. The road will undergo demolition before crews install stone base and base asphalt. Once this is complete, final pavement and striping will be performed.

The Mid-Town parking deck, levels A, B, and C will also be inaccessible during the 900-block closure. The sidewalk at the parking deck entrance will undergo demolition before crews install concrete and brick pavers, and is one of the final activities in this block. 

Public parking will be located at the following locations:

  • On-street, in the 1000 block of Main Street, between Tenth Street and Eleventh Street
  • City Center parking deck top level, on Main Street, between Tenth Street and Eleventh Street (former Sun Trust parking deck). The “Free 2 Hour” parking program will be offered through the pay station on the top level.

Mid-Town parking deck levels D and E will continue to be available to permit holders. Level D is accessible via Ninth Street between Commerce Street and Main Street, and E level is accessible via Commerce Street. 

A complete shut-down of the 1100 block on Main Street and the intersection of Twelfth Street is scheduled for August in order to install the Arrival Pad, rebuild the road and install final paving. This is the final block of work for the project that is scheduled for completion in October. 

The Main Street Renewal Project is a multi-million dollar joint investment between the City of Lynchburg and Appalachian Power to replace aging waterlines, update certain sanitary and storm systems and to improve reliability and provide for future development. The project area includes four blocks of Main Street from Eighth to Twelfth Streets and Tenth Street from Main to Church Streets.
