STAUNTON – The reopening of Churchville Avenue to two-way traffic in Staunton is being delayed by one day due to pavement marking work.  The pavement marking was anticipated to finish on Oct. 11 but now that work will not be complete until later causing Churchville Avenue to open to traffic on Oct. 13 rather than the previously announced date of Oct. 12.
