Update for Week of May 2:  

As of this week, the traffic shift and the truck detour coming North on Route 17 to Old Stockyard Road to access Route 55/Main Street will be in place. An image of the truck detour is provided below for reference.

The contractor continues to work on the ductbank along Main Street working towards 7-11/Truist Bank and crossing at the intersection at Rectortown/Winchester Rd next week. The contractor continues to complete the streetscape work at Frost Street including the sidewalk and ramps, and retaining walls; and completion of the sidewalk demo and replacement on the northside of Main Street down to the staging lot. Please be mindful that areas of sidewalk will be closed during the install and cure period for sidewalk, ramps, and related streetscape work. In addition, we will reach out to individual property owners to coordinate install of driveway entrances on the north side of the street.

As many have seen over the past several months, Dominion’s contractor Pike is in the area working on both new termination poles for the project but also work outside of the project. We have requested an update from Dominion on their separate work in and around Marshall and will send out as soon as possible.

Parking: Temporary parking areas remains with shifts during the ductbank construction. The temporary parking signage has been placed along the project area, and will continue to be adjusted where available. When directing patrons to parking access, also remember areas along both sides of Main Street outside of the construction area; South Frost Street; and always the Marshall Community Center parking lot.

Deliveries and Events: As a reminder, please let us know if you have an updated delivery schedules for coordination purposes. 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.
