Utility work causing traffic delays on McIntire Road
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va (WVIR) -
Drivers can expect intermittent delays at the intersection of McIntire Road and Harris Street, as well as on McIntire near the 250 bypass Wednesday. Police are directing traffic at the McIntire - Harris intersection as utility work continues on gas pipelines.
Lt. Ronnie Roberts says that the work was delayed due to rain and anticipates it will be complete Wednesday afternoon.
“We've asked people to really to take some alternate routes, to go around the area, to avoid some of those delays. But if you're caught in here while we have to shut things down and rerouting you around, please be patient,” he stated.
On the south side of McIntire Road near the 250 bypass, traffic delays will result from periodic blasting for new construction.
Roberts anticipates that work will be done by Friday.
