Street Sweeping Scheduled March 22nd, 2017

l Public Service Announcement:

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), will conduct street sweeping service within the Town of Halifax on Wednesday March 22nd starting at the Banister River bridge on VA Scenic Byway 360 (Bethel Road) and progressing on North Main Street (Junction US Highway 501) on all VDOT maintained primary roads with curb and gutter, including some residential, residential mixed-use and commercial areas. VDOT will schedule another street sweeping service later in the spring to address secondary roads with curb and gutter.

The VDOT crew plans to sweep the sections along Edmunds Boulevard, the Main Street commercial area from the intersection of Mountain Road to the railroad tracks after 5:00 pm as a convenience to businesses and patrons.

The purpose is to clear any sand residue remaining from road applications during the winter months as performed routinely on an annual basis.

Residents and businesses within the town are encouraged to park vehicles off-street to allow the VDOT road crew full access to curb and gutter areas. The Halifax Police Department will assist with notification and the temporary relocation of any vehicles blocking the sweeping areas.

Once the street sweeping machinery has passed through each area, on-street parking may resume promptly.

Weather permitting, VDOT will complete the street sweeping service in one day or continue the road work if necessary on Thursday March 23rd, weather permitting. These dates are subject to change with as much advanced notification as possible.
