City Hall to Gain New Handicap Accessible Entrance
Lynchburg City Hall, 900 Church Street, will soon gain an additional handicap accessible entrance. Beginning Tuesday, September 14 and continuing for approximately 22 weeks (150 days), 7:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. weekdays, contractors will create a handicap accessible entrance to the front of the building. Substantial completion of the project is tentatively planned for Wednesday, February 9, 2022. Currently, the only handicap accessible entrance is located at the building’s Tenth Street entrance.
During construction, a portion of the sidewalk at the main entrance in front of City Hall (from the corner of Ninth and Church Streets to the far-left entrance of City Hall) will be closed. All other entrances will remain open during construction. Motorists should be aware of intermittent lane closures on Church Street in front of City Hall to allow for material deliveries.
Initially, there will be significant activity with demolition and steel erection work, followed by a pause in activity while the precast elements of the project are being made.
The work is being performed by Jamerson-Lewis Construction at a cost of approximately $288,696, funded through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
The City apologizes for any inconvenience during construction.
