|Covington Releases Emergency Roadway Repairs Update|
|Covington, VA (Nov. 17, 2020) - |
The City of Covington would like to make our citizens aware that Mallow Road will continue to be CLOSED 24 hours a day, to thru traffic, until the week of December 14-18, 2020 weather permitting for completion of the road stabilization project. This is due to the unforeseen heavy rains we experience in the area around November 11th & 12th, which has caused the crews to experience drainage issues throughout the construction area. Alternative routes avoiding Mallow Road should be utilized during this period. These road repairs are connected with the emergency road work from slope failures on South Carpenter, and Edgemont Drive as a result of heavy rains in June.
The City of Covington would like to make our citizens aware that Edgemont Drive’s Emergency Road Work Repair has been POSTPONED due to unforeseen weather conditions affecting work on Mallow Road. The original date of November 11 – November 20 work has been rescheduled to take place beginning on November 30, 2020.
On November 30, 2020, Edgemont Drive will be CLOSED for repairs regarding our Emergency Road Work which began back in June of 2020. Edgemont Drive will be CLOSED from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Monday thru Friday, from Church Avenue to Grass Avenue. The neighborhood thoroughfares are not intended to be a detour, especially for commercial vehicles. Alternative routes are strongly encouraged due to the necessary closure, and avoiding Edgemont Drive should be utilized during these hours for all vehicular traffic. The completion date for the project is now projected to be December 14-18, 2020 weather permitting.
