JAMESTOWN – Work to redesign a major thoroughfare in Jamestown is getting underway.
Construction crews began preliminary work on Washington Street Friday morning. The full project, according to city officials, will get underway on Monday between Fluvanna Avenue to Second Street.
The road’s current four-lane configuration will be modified into three-lanes, with a two-way left-turn lane in the middle of the street. New crosswalks and pedestrian lights will also be installed.
Furthermore, a new 5-foot bike lanes with 2-foot buffer areas along both sides of Washington Street.
In conjunction with the redesign, the Jamestown Board of Public Utilities will also be working on a waterline replacement project between 6th and 22nd Streets.
While the roadwork is underway, motorists should expect delays in the area.
