Tabor Closing (Temporarily) 10 March

by Jim on February 28, 2014

So … those of you/us who live off of Park Road, Jamestown, etc and Westhall, Parkside Village … traffic’s going to be interesting when Tabor closes.

Let’s make sure to keep patronizing those in the Square!

Tabor closing route

via email (for those who don’t know where Tabor is, here’s a map):

Weather permitting, the daytime closure of Tabor Street with detour is tentatively going to take place daily (Monday through Friday) for two weeks beginning March 10. Confirmation on the timing of the closure will be announced next week. The road will be closed to through traffic but access to private property will be maintained from High Street during the closure. Complete closure of the road will speed up the proposed Tabor Street improvements and will result in a safer construction work zone. ?

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has granted permission for this detour with specific restrictions and requirements:

• Tabor Street may be closed and the detour used only on weekdays between the hours of 8:00 AM and 4:30 PM, excluding holidays.
• The existing gravel surface of the detour route through the lumber yard must be graded and additional stone added as necessary to provide a drivable surface acceptable to VDOT and maintained in that condition for the duration of the detour.
• Detour signage will be provided as directed by VDOT.

The road closure has been coordinated with the public school bus routing managers. VDOT has determined that the only viable detour route is via High Street, through the lumber yard, and connected to the newly constructed Library Avenue. A copy of that route is available here.
