Construction of the Lynchburg Expressway Main Street Downtown ramp (Exit 1A) gore will begin the week of March 20. (A gore is defined as “the space between a through roadway and an entrance or exit ramp.”) The construction is expected to last through June 2023.
The project will include safety barrier and roadway improvements within the gore area between the Lynchburg Expressway and the Main Street Downtown ramp. No lane closures or detours are anticipated; only shoulders within the area will be closed. Motorists should use caution while traveling through the work zone, be alert to any changes in traffic patterns and obey temporary signage.
