Construction Reroutes Traffic at Edgemont and McCormick

February 14, 2012

February 14, 2012 — Edgemont Road, near its intersection with McCormick Road near the University's of Virginia's Slaughter Recreation Center, will be closed for about a month to accommodate utility installation for a building under construction nearby.

The closure will run from Feb. 23 to March 30. Traffic for the buildings on Edgemont will have to enter the looping road at its opposite end and drive the long way around. Crews will build a special lane though the construction to accommodate emergency vehicles.

McCormick Road, near its intersection with Edgemont, will be reduced to one-lane traffic through Feb. 22, also to accommodate the utility installation.

Flaggers will direct traffic during construction and both lanes will be open at night.
