A segment of the Rivanna Trail just south of Ivy Road will be closed May 28-31, between the hours of 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Signage and fencing will be installed, and flaggers will be monitoring the operations and use of the trail. Users of the trail will want to use the various spur trails on Observatory Hill to connect to nearby streets and bypass the work site.
Construction has commenced on a sewer line project to serve the new development planned for the site of the former Kluge Children's Rehabilitation Center. The project runs through the end of the year; while additional closures may be required, the project crew will minimize impacts to the RT and keep closures to a minimum.
For the duration of the project, safety fencing and signage will be in place to provide a safety barrier and prevent access to the construction site.
