    Main St. Bridge Replacement Project Update

    Beginning Wednesday, January 24, the southbound right lane of the Route 29 Lynchburg Expressway, near the Main Street Bridge, will be closed long term to allow for the demolition of the old Main Street Bridge and the construction of the new bridge.  Motorists are asked to be aware of the closure and to proceed accordingly.  Detour signage will be in place. 

    The Main Street Bridge Replacement Project includes:

    raising the height of the structure to provide greater clearance for traffic traveling north and south on the Lynchburg Expressway
    lengthening the bridge at both ends to provide greater clearance to traffic on the Lynchburg Expressway
    improvements to the acceleration and deceleration lanes used to enter/exit the northbound lane of Route 29 Business
    improvements to the aesthetics of the Main Street Bridge

    An interactive detour map is available here.
