Construction on Candler's Mountain Road to Start Soon

Lynchburg, VA - Expect some travel delays on Candler's Mountain Road next week. VDOT plans to replace the deck on the bridge near the entrance to the River Ridge Mall.

One lane of traffic will be closed off. You won't be able to make that left turn into the mall, either.

"If you want to enter River Ridge Mall from the westbound lanes, you actually go a little further up the road and turn right just beyond the Wells Fargo bank, circle the bank and come back across at the light," said VDOT Public Affairs Manager Paula Jones.

VDOT says both lanes of the bridge should be re-opened by Black Friday this year.
