Spring 2020 Street Resurfacing Program


In an effort to conserve funds during the COVID-19 pandemic, the City has elected to omit the General Fund sponsored paving of Non-Inventory City streets from this season’s schedule. Only those streets funded through VDOT grants or State Street Maintenance dollars are included. These consist of the following locations:

  1. VDOT PEP Funded Streets:                          From                                                     To                          

                North Main Street                                           J.P.P Entrance                                   Start Two-Way                                                                                                                                                                                  Traffic

                Spotswood Drive                                             Houston Street                                 Nelson Street


Paving of VDOT PEP funded N. Main Street was completed on June 22, 2020.

The resurfacing of Main Street, Preston Street (within the CBD), Nelson Street, Washington Street, and Henry Street is scheduled to commence July 13, 2020 and be completed by July 31, 2020. The contractor will start with Preston, Nelson, Washington and Henry streets the week of July 13, 2020. The contractor will commence resurfacing operations on Main Street itself the week of July 20, 2020. When Main Street resurfacing begins, it is anticipated that the right hand drive lane, and associated side street parking, will be resurfaced first. The contractor will then back up and resurface the left hand drive lane and associated parking. Main Street itself will take approximately one week to complete. This work is highly weather dependent. The replacement of project area pavement markings should commence within one week of completion of paving operations.

The remaining streets on the above list have yet to be scheduled.

Please call Public Works at (540) 463-3154 with any questions you may have.
