Current Traffic Advisories:
Traffic on West Main Street in front of the University of Virginia’s Battle Building construction site is scheduled to be one-way westbound from Friday, Dec. 6, through Monday, Dec. 9.
Eastbound traffic will be detoured around the site using 14th Street NW, Wertland Street and 10th Street NW. Westbound traffic on West Main Street in front of the project will be limited to one lane. Electronic signage and construction personnel will help direct traffic.
Weather permitting, the detour will be in place through 9 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 9. If inclement weather delays the work, the detour will instead take place from 6 a.m. Friday, Dec. 13, to 9 p.m. Monday, Dec. 16.
The construction work will also affect some Charlottesville Area Transit (CAT) buses. CAT will detour the Free Trolley, Route 4, Route 6, and Route 7 in the eastbound direction on West Main Street. This will only affect passengers using bus stop #11138 (corner of West Main Street and 11th Street SW eastbound).
There will be a temporary bus stop installed at the corner of West Main Street and Roosevelt Brown Boulevard. This temporary stop will only be served by the Free Trolley and Route 7. Route 4 and 6 will not service bus stop #11138 or the temporary bus stop. The detour will accommodate the installation of a 30,000-gallon water tank for the Battle Building, which is scheduled to open in June 2014.
