Work continues to progress on schedule on the street and open-space restoration at the intersection of 3rd Street and Virginia Avenue. Placement of new granite curbing and sidewalks, drainage work and underground preparations for streetlights is well underway on the west side of 3rd Street. Weather permitting, CSX expects the west half of the intersection will receive new pavement within the next week. Shortly thereafter, traffic will be directed off of the temporary street deck/bridge and onto the new paving in a temporary configuration to allow removal of the remaining portion of the street deck/bridge. Street restoration will then continue on the east half of the 3rd Street and Virginia Avenue intersection. Drivers are urged to be cautious as they navigate the new lane configurations on 3rd Street.
CSX appreciates the community’s patience as we work expeditiously toward completing the project and the streetscape enhancements.
