Street closed as steel arrives at courthouse / July 15, 2019

As the restoration of the Halifax County Courthouse continues, Edmunds Boulevard will be closed off for the next two weeks to allow deliveries of structural steel to reach the work site.

County Administrator Scott Simpson announced the closing of the street, which loops behind the courthouse square, with the first deliveries of steel expected to come on Monday. The steel will be used to build a replacement facility for the courthouse annex and the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s office. Both buildings have been torn down.

In order to off-load the deliveries and to erect the steel structure, work crews need to position a crane near the intersection of Edmunds Boulevard and Blue Ridge Lane, running in front of the county’s regional jail facility. The crane set-up and safety perimeters will require both roads to be closed to through-traffic for approximately two weeks for this first phase of the work.

Appropriate signage, barricades, and detour information will be in place to direct access to the Blue Ridge Regional Jail Facility, Halifax Town Hall, the Sheriff’s Office, and the solid waste collection and recycling site at the end of Blue Ridge Lane. Access to the Lisa Francisco Law Office, Commonwealth’s Attorney Office, Owens Insurance, and Cunningham Law Office can be made from Mountain Road.
