LEXINGTON, Va., July 3, 2014 – Portions of Maiden Lane will be closed next week as contractors working on the Corps Physical Training Facilities project begin installing conduit for underground utilities. Maiden Lane runs between Letcher Avenue and Main Street beside the office of the VMI Police, and provides access to the South Institute Hill parking lot.

Beginning Tuesday, July 8, excavation will start at the southern end of Maiden Lane, near Main Street. The work will continue along the length of Maiden Lane and terminate on the north side of Letcher Avenue. The final section of Maiden Lane and the width of Letcher Avenue will be direct-bored, so there will be no road closure at Letcher Avenue.

Limited vehicular traffic will be allowed during the work, which is expected to last 3 ½ weeks. Drivers are asked to use caution and to watch for signs and workers directing or diverting traffic.

Questions should be directed to the Construction Office at 540-464-7700.
