Temple Avenue Bridge Closed - Bus Transportation for Students may be delayed
The Colonial Heights Public School Transportation Department would like to remind parents that some delays in student transportation may be experienced due to the Temple Avenue Bridge closing noted by the City below. Please contact our Transportation Coordinator at 731-1365 with any questions or to discuss concerns, if needed.
From the City of Colonial Heights Engineering Department posted on www.colonialheightsva.gov on Nov. 27, 2013:
"Currently, one lane of the east bound Temple Avenue bridge has been closed for the implementation of emergency structural repairs. Due to a recent evaluation by the City and our structural consultant today of the lane that is under traffic, it was concluded that this lane is not safe for traffic. Therefore, the City will be closing both lanes of the east bound Temple Avenue bridge.
East bound traffic along Temple Avenue will be detoured north on Boulevard to Ellerslie Avenue, east to Conduit Road and then south to Temple Avenue. This detour will be in effect approximately 2 weeks while emergency structural repairs are completed."
