[ARCHIVED] Intersection of Lynn and Loyal streets slated for temporary closure

Danville Utilities will close the intersection of Lynn Street and Loyal Street this weekend to allow contract crews to excavate for the installation of a large manhole.

The intersection will be closed at 5:30 p.m. Friday, March 30, and remain closed until the work is completed. The intersection may be reopened to traffic as early as Saturday afternoon.

Further closure of the intersection will take place over the following three to four weeks as crews install electric distribution duct banks. These closures will affect traffic on weekday evenings beginning at 5:30 p.m. and continuing overnight until 7 a.m., at which time the intersection will be made ready to reopen to traffic.

“We recognize that disruptions are inevitable as a result of the closure of this intersection,” said Carlis Wells, project manager for the power and light division of Danville Utilities. “By carrying out the work during the evenings and overnight, we hope to keep it to a minimum.”

The closure of the intersection is part of a project to convert existing overhead circuits to underground in the portion of the River District from Wilson Street to Patton Street between Bridge Street and Lynn Street. The installation of the manhole and conduits along Lynn and Loyal Street will complete the construction phase of the project.
