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:
North Main Street J.P.P Entrance Start Two-Way Traffic
Main Street Jordan Street Nelson Street
Preston Street Main Street Randolph Street
Nelson Street Main Street Randolph Street
Washington Street Main Street Randolph Street
Henry Street Main Street Jefferson Street
Preston Street Randolph Street Spotswood Drive
Varner Lane Short Street Preston Street
Moore Street Preston Street Dead End
Taylor Street Preston Street Dead End
Taylor Street Preston Street Spotswood Drive
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.
