Street repairs continue in Halifax in evenings

SoVaNow.com / April 04, 2013
The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will continue performing surface improvements along the US Highway 501 corridor (South Main Street from the railroad tracks to North Main Street at the intersection of Bethel Road (VA Scenic Byway 360) in the Town of Halifax 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 and from time to time 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 1st local VDOT maintenance crews will be coordinating with the project sub-contractor to eradicate 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 (VA Scenic Byway 360) intersection and including all of Edmunds Boulevard (Rte. #349). According to VDOT, the line eradication work will be performed during the evenings from Wednesday 04-03-13 through Friday 04-05-13, weather permitting, and because it is a mobile operation, this activity should not cause a major disruption to traffic.

During the week of April 8th, 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 those attending court services traveling in this general area should exercise caution at all times when the VDOT crew and sub-contractors are in operation.
