Update for the weeks of December 13th – December 31st:
Over the next two weeks, the contractor will continue the ductbank construction along Main Street to approximately the location of the 7-11 entrance on Main Street. This will include the installation of the large manholes within the Frost Street intersection, near Silent Partners and Piedmont Tractors. Additional safety fence will be installed in required areas up to the 7-11 entrance on Main Street. We will reach out to the individual businesses/property owners ahead of this install. The majority of Fauquier WSA work was completed this week.

Please note on December 24 and December 31, no active construction will take place for the holidays.

Please note PARKING will be maintained through the use of temporary locations, where active construction is not occurring within the roadway.

Parking: Temporary parking areas on the north parking lane may shift depending on the ductbank construction this week. Those areas will shift over the course of the project but currently are available in front of Total Restoration & Custom Upholstery. Currently we have placed temporary signage for these areas, while awaiting arrival of the permanent signage to be used throughout the project.

Deliveries and Events: As a reminder, please let us know if you have regular or specific deliveries that you need assistance coordinating with the project. Also please let us know of any events for coordination and advertisement.

As a reminder, citizens and visitors should be mindful of the restricted areas for the safety of themselves and the workers. If barrels, safety barriers, etc. are moved or removed, this not only places individuals in potential harm it could pose a potential shutdown of the project by the safety inspectors or VDOT.
