[ARCHIVED] Overnight Closure of Barracks Road to Expedite Waterline Project Completion

Department of Utilities

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 24, 2022

Overnight Closure of Barracks Road to Expedite Waterline Project Completion


CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - Charlottesville Department of Utilities is committed to providing safe, reliable, and low-cost water service to residents and businesses.  As a part of the waterline installation project along Barracks Road, a Sunday through Thursday overnight closure of Barracks Road will begin June 26, 2022 and is scheduled to continue through August 5, 2022.  The closure will begin at 8pm each night and the road will reopen by 5am the next morning.

The nightly overnight closure of Barracks Road will begin at Emmet Street to the north and will extend south to the intersection with Rugby Road.  Overnight closures of this section of Barracks Road will allow the City’s contractor, Linco Inc., to work more efficiently, decreasing the overall duration of the project.  A detour will direct traffic around the closure via Emmet Street, the 250 Bypass, Dairy Road, and Rugby Road.  Local traffic will have access to Howard Drive, Buckingham Road, and Hilltop Road from the Rugby Road intersection.  A map of the detour route is below.

Barracks Road Detour

This waterline installation project will replace pipes that are approximately 70 years old, and susceptible to breaks. The installation of up-to-date ductile iron pipes will greatly improve water service in this area.  The project will begin June 26, 2022 and is anticipated to take three months to complete.  This work is a part of the water main replacement program, which is integral in maintaining the safe, reliable, and low-cost water service provided by the Charlottesville Department of Utilities. 

All questions regarding this project should be directed to the project manager, Roy Nester, at 434-970-3908 or nesterr@charlottesville.org
