A great place to live, work and play.

    Each fall, the City of Lynchburg conducts a citywide Leaf Collection Program to assist residents with the disposal of leaves. This year, in an effort to improve the leaf collection process, the  City of Lynchburg's Public Works Department is piloting a new schedule for leaf collection.

    Due to a break on the raw waterline from the Pedlar Reservoir, the following zones will receive treated drinking water from the James River until further notice:

    Beginning Monday, November 5, and continuing into the following week of November 12, Atherholt Road between Tate Springs Road and crossing Langhorne Road will experience rolling closures and flagging operations while contractors for Level 3 Communications, LLC conduct installation of fiber optics and pavement boring operations. These closures and flagging operations will be conducted from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. daily until work is completed in the project area.
