College Avenue work will continue through Friday

The closure of College Avenue near University of Mary Washington for utility work for the college’s new campus center will continue through Friday at 5 p.m. The work was to have concluded already but the recent rains have delayed the work, Fredericksburg officials said today.

Earlier, the city had announced that  College Avenue between Payne and Rowe streets would be completely closed to traffic from Sept. 30 through Oct. 4 due to extensive utility work in and around the street. As a result, the sidewalk closest to UMW was closed though the sidewalk on the neighborhood side remained open.

A map with detour information is available through the college.
