    Night Work Scheduled for Storm Drain Installation on Lakeside Drive (Aug. 2-5)

    Beginning Monday, August 2 and continuing through Thursday, August 5, 7:00 p.m. – 5:00 a.m., contractors for the City of Lynchburg will be installing stormwater piping along and across areas of Old Forest Road near the intersection of Lakeside Drive as part of the Lakeside Drive Bridge Over Blackwater Creek Project.  Flaggers will be used to alternate traffic flow along Old Forest during these hours; however, motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes to avoid delays if possible.
    The City of Lynchburg is reconstructing a new section of Lakeside Drive in order to improve traffic flow through the existing intersection at Lakeside Drive/ College Drive/ Old Forest Road and as a requested precursor to the College Lake Dam Removal project. These modifications will enhance safety and improve access to the University of Lynchburg, via Hopwood Drive.
