Streetscape Project Update

Fielder’s Choice Enterprises (FCE) is starting to pick up speed with the streetscape project and things are really starting to look great!!! Sometimes it is hard to imagine how bad those sidewalks looked until they have been replaced…

Second piece of good news is that the parking spaces along both blocks of North Wayne are open again! We will restripe these parking spaces towards the end of the project when we repave Wayne Avenue. Until then, please let your customers know that they can park there…

Next, work has shifted to Main Street for the next several weeks. Once the Fall Foliage Festival is complete, we will shift part of the construction crew back to South Wayne to finish up the work in front of the LL&B building.

Finally, we will be closing Main Street to vehicle traffic from Wayne Avenue to just in front of the Wayne Theatre for a single day during the week of October 14th. This is necessary to install a new stormwater line and the fire suppression waterline for the Wayne Theatre. I will let you know the exact day as we get closer. I will also provide you with the details of the detour plan soon.

If you have any questions, my office phone is 540-942-6604. You can also email me at planning@ci.waynesboro.va.us.

You also can visit www.revitalizingdowntownwaynesboro.com and look under the “Infrastructure Improvements” tab for more information on this and other downtown revitalization projects. A copy of the Streetscape plans is also available for download at this website.
