Delays likely on US 501 over US 29/460 in Lynchburg
Lane closures in place during bridge work

LYNCHBURG, Va. –Motorists will likely experience delays on US 501 in Lynchburg beginning the latter part of next week.

US 501 will be reduced to one lane either direction in the vicinity of the bridge over US 29/460. The northbound lane will be reduced to 15 feet in width.

The lane closures are necessary while a bridge deck overlay is performed on the two structures. The overlay is begin performed to further the usable life of the structure, to reduce infiltration of water and improve skid resistance, ride quality and surface.

The project is expected to be complete by December 15, 2017.
