Proffit Rd will remain closed as the Norfolk Southern rail road bridge replacement work continues until about September 24, 2006

, according to VDOT’s Darin Simpson.

As reported by Charlottesville Tomorrow in May

, VDOT told the Board of Supervisors that the road might be closed as long as 90 days, but they hoped the project would be completed before schools reopened last week.

The County and VDOT have received positive feedback about the temporary traffic signals installed on Polo Grounds Road at the one lane underpass.  These were installed in anticipation of additional traffic caused by the bridge replacement.  Mr. Simpson informed Charlottesville Tomorrow this morning that VDOT will be evaluating the warrants, or list of conditions, to determine whether those lights or improved signage should be made permanent.
