Halifax street work continues through the week

SoVaNow.com / April 08, 2013
The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will continue performing surface improvements to the U.S. Highway 501 corridor through the town of Halifax, from South Main Street from the railroad tracks to North Main Street at the intersection of Bethel Road (Va. Scenic Byway 360) during the next several weeks.

The work will entail eradicating existing traffic lines, crosswalks and on-street parking spaces, latex application, milling and repaving in certain sections of the roadway. From time to time the work will require traffic control and the restriction of on-street parking. Specific schedules and updates will be furnished by VDOT during the process.

During the week of April 8, local VDOT maintenance crews will be coordinating with the project sub-contractor to complete the eradication of traffic lines, crosswalks and on-street parking spaces along South Main Street from the railroad tracks, continuing along North Main Street from Mountain Road to the Bethel Road intersection and including all of Edmunds Boulevard (Rte. #349).

According to VDOT, the line eradication work will be performed at the intersection of South Main Street and Mountain Road during the evening of April 8, with the Halifax Police Department directing traffic at the intersection as needed.

Continuing the week of April 8, the slurry contractor will be performing the milling, repaving and latex application, weather permitting, in the project area previously described.

Motorists should be alert to road crew workers directing traffic when necessary and heavy machinery operating on South Main Street, North Main Street and Edmunds Boulevard during this period. At times, on-street parking areas will be blocked off.

Motorists, business owners, customers, pedestrians and persons attending court services traveling in this general area should exercise caution at all times when the VDOT crew and sub-contractors are in operation.
