TRAFFIC ALERT: Danville Main Street road work starts Monday

Posted: Updated:

City of Danville news release

Beginning Monday, March 11, and continuing for the remainder of the week, vehicular travel and parking will be restricted in the 300 block of Main Street, from Market Street to the intersection of Memorial Drive and Craghead Street.

For most of the week, travel will be restricted to one lane, with motorists traveling northbound toward the river being detoured onto Market Street toward Spring Street.

Motorists traveling southbound away from the river will use the one lane that will remain open in that block.  This lane, however, will be shifted at various times, so motorists should proceed cautiously and follow the traffic cone patterns that will be set up.

The detour and other travel restrictions will allow for scheduled construction activity, including the installation of a manhole, repair of sanitary sewer lines, and placement of crosswalks at Main and Market streets, and Main Street and Memorial Drive/Craghead Street. This activity is part of the streetscape project.

Parking in the block will be limited for most of the week.

Construction activity Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday night may result in further detour of traffic.  Parking in the 300 block during these times will not be allowed.

Two-way traffic will be restored the following week, but parking may continue to be limited in this block for three to four days as work continues on placement of crosswalks.
