DELAYS POSSIBLE ON CANDLER’S MTN ROAD THURSDAY, JULY 10

LYNCHBURG – Motorists may encounter some traffic delays on Candler's Mountain Road this week. A team from the University of Kansas will be conducting an evaluation of the westbound bridge deck over the railroad lines on Thursday, July 10.

Operations are scheduled to begin at approximately 9 a.m., weather permitting, and short-term lane closures are likely.

This structure was rehabilitated in 2013 and this evaluation will look at the current state of the structure and the materials used.
