TRAFFIC ALERT: VDOT to close lane of Temple Ave for pipe repairs this week

By: Michael Campbell News Editor

Those who frequent Temple Avenue near Puddledock Road just outside of Colonial Heights may experience some traffic delays over the next couple of days as road crews make pipe repairs in the area, according to Virginia Department of Transportation officials.

Starting Thursday, Nov. 17 through Friday, Nov. 18, the eastbound left lane heading toward Prince George will be closed from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day between Puddledock Road and River Road/Edgewood Road in the county for those repairs.

Weather permitting, officials expect the work to be done by the end of the week.

VDOT advises drivers who want to avoid delays in the area to use Puddledock Road and follow it to East Washington Street eastbound during the expected closure times.

Those with questions about the project can call the VDOT customer service number at 800-FOR-ROAD (800-367-7623)
