VDOT crews due to complete road improvements in Halifax

SoVaNow.com / September 09, 2013
The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is tentatively scheduled to complete road surface improvements in Halifax along the U.S. Highway 501 corridor (South Main Street from the intersection of Mountain Road to North Main Street at the intersection of Bethel Road) on Monday, September 9, weather permitting, beginning at 10:00 a.m. Motorists should be alert to machinery operating on Mountain Road, South Main Street and North Main Street during this period along with personnel directing traffic when necessary.

VDOT’s painting sub-contractor, Roadmark Corporation, is expected to complete painting the traffic lanes, directional arrows and crosswalks from the intersection of Bethel Road (VA Scenic Byway 360) and North Main Street (US Highway 501) and continuing along North Main Street, Mountain Road (VA Scenic Byway 360), and South Main Street (US Highway 501) to Cemetery Street (Rte. #1111).

During this time, on-street parking on South Main Street and Edmunds Boulevard should not be impacted by the painting activity and parking areas behind the businesses will be unaffected. Motorists, business owners, customers and pedestrians traveling in this general area should exercise caution at all times when the contractors and sub-contractors are in operation.

VDOT crews have also been installing new pedestrian crosswalk signs at the existing crosswalks and will be addressing potential new crosswalk areas on North Main Street and South Main Street in the near future.

The Town of Halifax Police Department is circulating brochures to better inform pedestrians and motorists on crosswalk safety and how monitoring and enforcement in accordance with the Code of Virginia will be conducted.

The week of Monday, September 23, two-hour parking (between 8 a.m.-5 p.m.) signs downtown between Houston Street and Cemetery Street are scheduled tentatively to be installed by VDOT crews.
