    Overnight Work Scheduled for Concrete Installation in 1100 Block of Main St. (Oct. 11)

    On Monday, October 11, beginning at 2:00 a.m. and continuing for approximately 12 hours, contractors for the City of Lynchburg will pour concrete for the Arrival Pad in the 1100 block of Main Street. This overnight work is necessary due to the high demand and large amount of concrete needed as base for the Arrival Pad. 

    “This is a huge endeavor and will require over 230 cubic yards of concrete and 20 trucks to deliver the materials over 12 hours,” said Jim Talian, Special Projects Manager for the City of Lynchburg. “We apologize to the public in advance for the overnight disturbance; however, the final product will be worth it.” 

    This area of Main Street continues to be closed to all through traffic from 11th Street to 12th Street, including the 12th Street intersection.

    The Arrival Pad is a geometric pattern of street pavers in the roadway and the sidewalk over two-thirds of a city block. It can be viewed on the project website.

    The Main Street Renewal Project is a multi-million dollar joint investment between the City of Lynchburg and Appalachian Power to replace aging waterlines, update certain sanitary and storm systems and modernize the underground electrical system to improve reliability and provide for future development. The project area includes four blocks of Main Street from Eighth to 12th Streets and Tenth Street (from Main to Church Streets).
