    12th Street Utilities Replacement Project Update

    The City of Lynchburg’s Department of Water Resources is continuing construction in conjunction with the 12th Street Utilities Replacement Project. This project also incorporates the residential areas on Polk and Monroe Streets as well as 11th and the side streets intersecting 12th Street.  
     
    This construction project continues to impact traffic to and from Dunbar Middle School and R.S. Payne Elementary School. In addition, GLTC bus routes in this area will continue to be closed.
     
    Currently, the northbound lane on 12th Street (from Buchanan Street to Harrison Street) is closed with detours in place via Park Avenue and Fifth Street. It is anticipated that construction will continue along this area through September 2020 with one-way traffic on 12th Street and occasional shifts in traffic patterns.  
     
    Motorists should use caution while traveling through the work zones and expect delays until the construction is completed in October 2020 when all affected streets will receive a full asphalt overlay.
