Traffic Alert: Crews Working in Parts of Lynchburg

Lynchburg, VA - Starting Tuesday, Jefferson Street in Lynchburg will be closed for construction from Horseford Road to 13th street.

This work is expected to last about five months.

The public parking lot across from 13th street at Riverfront Park will also be closed. There will be temporary parking.

City officials are reminding everyone that despite the construction, all nearby businesses are still open.

Crews are replacing sewer lines, and that could mess up your drive in another part of Lynchburg.

The 200 block of Winston Ridge Road is closed to traffic Tuesday while crews are at work.

You have to go to the Concord Turnpike to get to spots like Lafayette Street on Winston Ridge or you can take Florida Avenue.

Work should be finished by the end of the day.
