PARK AVENUE TO BE CLOSED TEMPORARILY
Motorists to use detour

Utility and other work associated with the Piedmont Drive/Robertson Bridge highway improvement project will result in the closure of the Park Avenue at the intersection of Memorial Drive for approximately two weeks beginning Monday, July 9. 

The closure is necessary to install utilities and complete the grading and paving of the intersection.  During this closure, traffic will be detoured onto Bishop Road and West Main Street.  The Gingerbread House and the Brown Bean will be accessible via Memorial Avenue.

The project has been underway since 2010 and is scheduled for completion by mid-September.

For information about highway work zones statewide, visit www.511VA.org, call 511 or access the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) website at www.virginiadot.org.
