South Virginia Street Construction Begins Sunday


The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) announced today that, beginning Sunday, pavement patching will begin on South Virginia Street between Plumb Lane and Patriot Boulevard.

“This stretch of roadway is in … poor condition and failing,” said RTC Project Manager Doug Maloy. “Just fixing potholes is not an option; we need to remove and replace larger areas of the surface of the roadway where the deterioration is more susceptible to potholes.”

The work will take place at night between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m.

RTC anticipates the work to take three weeks to complete, and two-way traffic will be maintained during the road repairs.

“We are working with our partners at the state and local level to address damaged roadways,” said RTC Executive Director Lee Gibson. “We greatly appreciate everyone’s patience while the work takes place.”
