Old Lynchburg Road Safety, Sidewalks and Drainage Update

From Charlottesville engineer Tony Edwards:

Hello everyone,
We have a lot of activities planned for the next two weeks, so your help in getting this information out is greatly appreciated.

May 2 & 3
Storm pipe installation will continue along OLR from 209 - 201.
Retaining walls at OLR 126,119,118,113,112 & 301 Middleton will be completed.
clearing operations will continue behind the Beach Club pool.

May 6- 10
Water service line work will be done at 250,248,246,242,240,238,110,118.
Storm outlet end  wall work at Middleton Lane  and creek will resume.
Concrete curb & sidewalk work will be installed at 227,225,223,221 OLR.
Concrete curb and driveway work along the east side will begin at 252,250,248,246.

May 13 to 17
Storm pipe work behind the behind and along side the Beach Club fence will begin. Top soil will be stockpiled from within the basin area behind the pool.
Concrete curb , sidewalks and driveways will be installed 215,213,211,209,207 OLR.
Traffic access will be limited to one lane and local traffic only. Please take alternate routes whenever possible. We apologize for the dust created in our efforts to keep the streets clear of dirt & mud. Once the retaining wall construction is complete there will be less need to sweep the streets and less dust. We appreciate your understanding. New driveway entrances will require no access to the driveways while the concrete cures. This generally takes 72 hours. We see that great coordination among property owners to share each others driveways during this period has worked will and trust this can continue. We thank you for letting us know of any special needs for access ahead of time and will work with those situations to accommodate where possible.
Thanks again for everyone's positive approach and cooperation towards getting these great improvements completed.
