WORK AT HOLLYMEAD DR. INTERSECTIONS BEGINS TUESDAY EVENING
Traffic detour in place 9 p.m.-6 a.m. tomorrow through Thursday
CHARLOTTESVILLE — Construction across the intersections of North Hollymead Drive and South Hollymead Drive will close those intersections to traffic overnight beginning at 9 p.m. Tuesday. During the closure work will be done to prepare for the installation of a new water main across the intersections.
South Hollymead Drive will be closed at the Route 29 intersection overnight Tuesday and Wednesday; South Hollymead Drive will be closed at Route 29 Thursday night. During the closures, between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m., detour signs will direct traffic to alternate routes. The intersections and the roads will be open to traffic between 6 .m. and 9 p.m.
The water main relocation is part of the Route 29 widening project under construction by Lane-Corman Joint Venture. The work, which is being coordinated with the Rivanna Water and Sewer Authority and the Albemarle County Service Authority, will upgrade the distribution system by replacing an aging 12-inch water main with the new 24-inch main running along the east side of Route 29.
