    Fifth St. Intersection Closing for Construction Nov. 12

    Beginning Monday, November 12, the intersection of Fifth Street, Park Avenue, and Monroe Street will be closed until further notice for the Fifth Street Corridor Utility and Streetscape Project, Phase III.  No cars, including emergency vehicles, will have access to this intersection.

    Although it is not part of the official detour, many citizens have been using Fourth Street as a detour between Federal Street and Fifth Street.  Fourth Street will no longer have any outlet onto Fifth Street because it is one-way street in the opposite direction at Monroe Street.  Please follow all posted detours and use Eighth Street as a detour between Federal Street and Taylor Street.

    The entire project is expected to be completed in June 2019.  For more information, please visit http://www.lynchburgva.gov/fifthstreet
