South Virginia Resurfacing Begins Sunday

Posted: Updated:

Following a wet winter, the Regional Transportation Commission will begin extensive patching of South Virginia Street. 

RTC says the road has rapidly deteriorated due to weather conditions over the past two winters, so extensive resurfacing is needed to patch the potholes and damage. 

The work is set to begin Sunday, June 11th at 7:00 p.m. Work is expected to last about three weeks.

They'll be working on South Virginia Street between Patriot Blvd and Plumb Lane. RTC says two-way traffic will be maintained at all times but drivers should plan for periodic lane closures throughout the course of the project. 

"We greatly appreciate everyone's patience while the work takes place as we improve our regional roads," RTC Executive Director Lee Gibson wrote. 

To check where along the route they'll be working each week, drivers can visit or follow RTC on Facebook and Twitter. 

This project is described as part of a slate of approximately $7 million worth of work that RTC is doing on regional roads this summer. They did increase their budget for corrective work in response to this winter. RTC says the funding comes from a fuel tax.
