‘Road Work Ahead’ on Temple Avenue

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Drivers can expect delays and confusion the next couple of weeks, in Colonial Heights.

The changes are on Temple Avenue eastbound bridge in Colonial Heights.

Engineers wanted to keep at least one lane open on the busy bridge while repairs were being made to the structure,  but later sent out an emergency alert.

“Due to a recent evaluation by the city and our structural consultant today, it was concluded that it is not safe for traffic."

Next, crews shut down both lanes, sending drivers in another direction.

Traffic going eastbound on Temple Avenue will be rerouted to Ellerslie Avenue to Conduit Road.

Crews expect the detours to be in place for at least two weeks.

    Engineers? Thought that their purpose, mission, job, and responsibility, from start to finish, was to access the problem;
    then, solve and fix based on their professional expertise.
    Seems Colonial Heights will now be clusterfluck during the
    busiest season with residents Paying, again.
