Pulse Traffic Advisory: Day Lane Closures on Broad Street from 7th to Old 14th Streets

Work continues to progress for the Pulse project.  Drivers are encouraged to pay close attention to Maintenance of Traffic (MOT) signage indicating differing lane closures in locations where work is occurring. Anticipated schedules are detailed below and are subject to change. Work is weather- and progress-dependent. For assistance, please call the Pulse Construction Hotline 804-980-0084.

WHO:              DB Contractor, Lane Construction
WHAT:             Roadway work including demolition of the Broad Street median. Lane closures are being coordinated to provide the least amount of disruption to traffic.
WHEN:            Beginning Monday, February 19 through approximately March 2018 from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. (Rain date Tuesday, February 20)

Work is weather- and progress-dependent. Lanes will re-open once work is completed in locations. Please follow all signs and any detours. 

WHERE:          Single lane closure in both EB and WB directions of Broad St. between 7th and Old 14th Sts. for roadway work.  There is no need to detour off Broad St. as both EB and WB travel will remain open.  Left-turn access at intersections will remain open. 

BRIEF: Depending on proximity to the work zone, those in the area could hear portions of the construction work. All work is being done within permitting guidelines, including allowed noise levels.

It is important to note that field conditions can change rapidly and Lane’s goal is to work safely and swiftly to minimize impacts to the areas where they work. The schedule is progress- and weather-dependent. Pedestrian pathway detours and street lane closure signs will be posted accordingly. Please follow construction signage and be aware of construction workers and vehicles within the work zone(s). Pedestrians are advised to follow work zone signage in the sidewalk area. Travelers may notice temporary barriers.

BACKGROUND: During construction, the public will continue to have access to businesses, organizations and services located along the Project route.

A Pulse construction hotline is active at 804-980-0084, providing updates on construction and expected impacts. For updates online, please visit the Pulse Construction Updates page: http://www.ridegrtc.com/brt/construction-info and explore more at PulseRVA.com. As work progresses, frequent updates will be provided.

Lane Construction will proactively minimize disruption to businesses and residents during construction. Any activity that would impact parking, loading zones, access, utilities and other business-related functions must receive approval from VDOT who will ensure that continuous access will be provided to all businesses at all times. All Project team members are committed to providing prompt information to ensure a smooth construction phase for businesses, residents and patrons of the region as part of the overall success of the Project.

As always, work is weather and progress-dependent.
