Construction, Maintenance and Utilities Road Closures

Congress Alley between Sixth and Seventh streets will be closed to through traffic February 13, 2017 through November 17, 2017 to accommodate a City Hall Repair project. Local access to the City Hall parking lot will be maintained.

North Second Street between Main and Washington streets will be closed 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily January 23, 2017 through February 2 to allow for construction work beneath Main Street.

A section of Old Clark Station Road near its western end is closed due to the poor condition of a bridge structure located near 3900 Old Clark Station Road. The closure will remain in place indefinitely while Public Works determines whether to replace or abandon this structure. The detour/alternate route is along Finchville Road.

West Washington Street is closed between 1st and 2nd  streets through December 2017 to accommodate construction activities located between W. Washington and W. Main Streets.  Emergency and local access is available.

Broad Run Road in front of number 8301 is closed until further notice due to instability in concrete retaining walls over a box culvert there, and the culvert itself. The closure is expected to continue for an extended period of time.

South Third Street closed between Market and Jefferson Streets for 10 months beginning January 3, 2017 due to Convention Center expansion.
