December 17, 2013 Update

Crews will be off for the holidays December 25-30.

Today Givens Lane will be striped with yellow lines from Winslow to Chickahominy and from Aden to Carroll.

This is a reminder that Givens Lane is closed to through traffic from Main Street to Whipple Drive.

When will the bus be able to come back to the Givens stop? This has been extremely inconvenient as a resident who takes the bus every day. The walk to Maple Ridge is pretty unpleasant since there’s no good place to walk on the side of Main St.

Unfortunately, not until the spring. Blacksburg Transit is waiting for the area to be paved before returning to the normal route.

So, when exactly is the paving scheduled for then?

There is no set time since it depends on the project, weather, and the paving contractor’s schedule. Right now, the plan is to reopen in April. You can let Blacksburg Transit know of your concerns at 540-961-1185.

Not that I want any more signage in the area of the circles but are street names going to be noted? We have had a few people lost looking for Northside/Carroll.

Also, the predominant NW winds are already bending signage at the end of Northside.

The project is in the process of putting signs up each week. When the project is completed all roads will be signed accordingly.
