Please follow all detours as signed and watch for workers in construction zones

The 2nd Avenue Entrance into Virginia will be closed from June 26, 2017 until the new highway portion of the bridge has been constructed.  


Construction season is once again upon us.
The City of Virginia will be reconditioning/resurfacing the following streets this summer:

• 12th Avenue West – between West Chestnut Street and approximately 300 feet south of 3rd Street South
• 13th Street South – between 7th Avenue West and 6th Avenue West.

Project Schedule
The preconstruction meeting was held this past Monday at Virginia City Hall. The Contractor provided a schedule as follows (weather permitting):
• Mobilization, prep work – Wednesday/Thursday, June 28/29, 2017
• Milling (removing) existing pavement – Friday, June 30, 2017
• Pave leveling course – Friday/Saturday, June 30/July 1, 2017
• Pave final wear course – Saturday July 1, 2017 (tentative). If unable to pave on July 1, they intend to pave on Wednesday, July 5, 2017.
• Final striping – approximately 10 days following final bituminous pavement.
Access & Working Hours
Access will be maintained to residences and businesses during the construction. The Contractor intends to utilize flaggers and not entirely close the roads. There may be short-term access closures as construction progresses. Working hours will typically be from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
On-Street Parking
The Contractor will be posting the streets for “no parking” for the duration of the construction. Please make arrangements for alternate parking during these time periods.
