    Main Street Renewal Project Update - Oct 19

    Beginning Saturday, October 19 and lasting approximately three weeks, Appalachian Power will be working underground at the intersection of Ninth and Main Streets as part of the Main Street Renewal Project. The intersection will be closed to through vehicular traffic on Ninth Street between Commerce and Church Streets, but access to parking lots and decks on Ninth Street will remain. One lane of through traffic will be open on Main Street in the 900 block with continued access to the Mid-Town parking deck. When exiting the parking deck, traffic will exit to Ninth Street heading uphill to Church Street only.  
    In the 800 block of Main Street, the Bank of the James parking deck will be entering from Main Street only, and traffic will exit the deck toward Eighth Street.  
    The City of Lynchburg continues to offer free two-hour parking for customers on the top level of the Midtown Parking deck. Check in at the pay station at Midtown or on the Passport phone app for details.
