Lexington to repave downtown streets

By  | 

LEXINGTON, Va. (WDBJ7) There will be paving work all through central Lexington this week.

The signs forbidding parking are already up along Main Street and other central thoroughfares in the city.

“"The receives state street moneys on a yearly basis for maintenance, also snow removal," says Jeff Martone, Lexington's City Engineer. "We haven't spent some money in the past couple years on repaving. We're doing so this year because it's time."

The work will be done overnight, from 8pm to 6 am, but cars have to be clear from the streets for the paving to occur.
