tunnel work

Brent Finnegan -- July 30th, 2007

Nothing to add to the news releases and stories out today about the ongoing quad tunnel construction work on South Main (I originally posted something about it in April) but feel free to add any concerns or observations you have in the comments. Is the traffic really as bad as they say it’s going to be?

    I think it was more the drivers than the traffic.

    30pts for the tuba carrying sophomore!

    The people painting stripes at lunchtime seemed to feel they had little to live for. Almost as if the contractors were using convict labor and chose the painters from among the condemned. I managed to miss them, but only just.

    All indications are that it’s going to be a slow slalom.

    From WSVA:

    Construction is slated to resume this week on South Main St.

    The work is part of James Madison University’s viaduct project which will provide a below street-level crossing of South Main St. to the new Performing Arts Center. This phase is expected to begin Wednesday at 6pm, and will conclude the next morning by 8. During this time frame, Columbia Gas will make final tie-ins and energize utility lines. Traffic will be affected between Bluestone Drive and Patterson Street. One Southbound lane and the center turning lane will be blocked, motorists are encouraged to use extreme caution while traveling the area.
