STREET CLOSURE – EAST MAIN BETWEEN WILLIAMSBURG AVE, DOCK & NICHOLSON STREETS

WHO: The City of Richmond Department of Public Works

WHAT:  Street Closure

WHEN:  Starting 12 a.m. on Tuesday, January 3, 2017 and ending at 12 p.m. on Wednesday, August 1, 2017

WHERE:  East Main Street between Williamsburg Avenue, Dock and Nicholson Streets

BACKGROUND:  The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) crews will begin construction on a project to replace the East Main Street (Route 5) bridge over Norfolk Southern railroad.

During construction, the road will be closed to through traffic. Local drivers will still be able to reach destinations around the bridge.  Eastbound and westbound traffic will be detoured via Williamsburg Avenue and Nicholson Street. Additionally, Dock Street and Government Road will also be open to traffic.

The City will be assisting VDOT and monitoring traffic. However, we advise drivers to plan extra time into your schedule and use widely available traffic apps to plan the best route by the time of day. Please consider alternate routes such as the Virginia Capital Trail by bicycle.

Please use caution, share the road and follow the detour signs. Safety is our first priority.
