    Temporary Lane Closures on Lakeside Drive (July 26 - Aug. 13)

    Over the next several weeks, in conjunction with the Lakeside Drive Bridge Over Blackwater Creek Project, 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. Lane closures in the area will occur as follows: 

    Monday, July 26 through Friday, August 13
    Daytime lane closures are to be expected between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., weekdays only. 

    Monday, August 2 through Friday, August 13
    Evening lane closures are to be expected between the hours of 7:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m., weekdays only. 

    Flaggers will alternate the traffic flow along Old Forest during these hours. Motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes if possible to avoid delays. 
    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, and 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.
