    Intersection of Main Street and 12th Street to Temporarily Close (Beginning Aug. 2)

    Beginning Monday, August 2 and continuing through the end of September, the 1100 block of Main Street (between 11th Street and 12th Street and the intersection of Main Street and 12th Street) will close to all through-traffic to accommodate road rebuilding operations and the installation of the Arrival Pad as part of the Main Street Renewal Project. This is the final part of work for the project which is scheduled for completion in October.

    A detour route will be in place for motorists, including emergency vehicles.

    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 Street to 12th Street and 10th Street (from Main to Church Street).
