Overnight detours on Broad & Main Streets this week

Overnight detours on Broad & Main Streets this week

Plan accordingly.

From GRTC:

Traffic signal work continues to progress for the Pulse project, advancing through intersections on Broad and Main Streets. This work is permitted during both day and night. As this work moves across streets and intersections, Lane Construction may implement some temporary overnight detours.

Detours will adjust each night as work progresses through the intersections. Drivers are encouraged to pay close attention to Maintenance of Traffic (MOT) signage indicating differing lane closures overnight in locations where the traffic signal work is occurring. Anticipated schedules are detailed below. For assistance, please call the Pulse Construction Hotline 804-980-0084.

WHO:              DB Contractor, Lane Construction

WHAT:             Night traffic signal work (trenching – cutting into the roadway and sidewalk – and manhole work) at various intersections along the Pulse route. Lane closures, including overnight closures, are being coordinated to provide the least amount of disruption to traffic.

WHEN:            Beginning 6 PM Sunday, July 16, 2017 (subsequent nights permitted between 6 PM and 6 AM, Sundays through Thursdays; however, progress may require some work extend to daytime hours).

WHERE:           The following intersections, estimated as follows. Work is weather- and progress-dependent.

Sunday night, July 16:
18th St. closed North of Main St. (EB & WB Main St. remain open)
Alternating EB/WB Broad St. closures at Sheppard St. for manhole work
Monday night, July 17:

BRIEF: Depending on proximity to the work zone, those in the area could hear portions of the construction work. All work is being done within permitting guidelines, including allowed noise levels. This traffic signal work includes cutting into the roadway and sidewalk at intersections. This work is for traffic signal modifications and the foundation for a Transit Signal Priority (TSP) system to expedite the buses moving through traffic signal-controlled intersections. TSP will improve schedule adherence and transit travel time efficiency while minimizing impacts on normal traffic flow.

It is important to note that field conditions can change rapidly and Lane’s goal is to work safely and swiftly to minimize impacts to the areas where they work. The schedule is progress- and weather-dependent. Pedestrian pathway detours and street lane closure signs will be posted accordingly. Please follow construction signage and be aware of construction workers and vehicles within the work zone(s). Pedestrians are advised to follow work zone signage in the sidewalk area. Travelers may notice temporary barriers while this closure is in effect.

BACKGROUND: During construction, the public will continue to have access to businesses, organizations and services located along the Project route.

A construction hotline is active at 804-980-0084, providing updates on construction and expected impacts. For updates online, please visit the Pulse Construction Updates page: http://www.ridegrtc.com/brt/construction-info and explore more at PulseRVA.com. As work progresses, frequent updates will be provided.

Lane Construction will proactively minimize disruption to businesses and residents during construction. Any activity that would impact parking, loading zones, access, utilities and other business-related functions must receive approval from VDOT who will ensure that continuous access will be provided to all businesses at all times. All Project team members are committed to providing prompt information to ensure a smooth construction phase for businesses, residents and patrons of the region as part of the overall success of the Project. For the City of Richmond Pulse Business Support Initiative, please visit PulseRVA.com.

As always, work is weather and progress-dependent.

GRTC Pulse is a modern, high quality, high capacity rapid transit system that will serve a 7.6-mile route along Broad Street and Main Street, from Rocketts Landing in the City of Richmond to Willow Lawn in Henrico County. The Pulse will link the public to many exciting destinations, businesses, services and restaurants.
