    Dr. Michael Barber, Virginia State Archaelogist, will speak at 3:00 p.m. on Friday, August 21 at the Lynchburg Museum about the Indian populations whose survival depended upon the James River.  Native Americans have been in Virginia for at least 15,000 years and their lives were often intertwined with waterways as a source of food, transportation, and defense. The James River and its tributaries were heavily used by native cultures which included the Powhatan tribes in Tidewater and the Monacans west of the fall line at Richmond.  

    Milling and paving operations continue through Wednesday, August 26, from 8:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. daily on Langhorne Road between Atherholt Road and Tate Springs Road.

Emergency vehicles will have access at all times.
