Public Works to Begin Replacing Traffic Poles on Atlantic Avenue on Friday

Public Works-Traffic Ops has scheduled the immediate removal of three traffic poles at the intersection of Atlantic Avenue and 5th Street for Friday, October 1, 2021, beginning at 7:30 a.m. There will be traffic control maintained at the intersection with temporary signage while the work is being done.

During routine maintenance on Wednesday, inspectors found enough rust and corrosion that made the poles structurally unsafe. The removal work is expected to be completed by 4 p.m. on Friday.

Traffic Ops will continue to monitor the intersection and provide traffic control throughout the process of replacing the poles. The poles should be delivered sometime in the spring and will be installed by May of 2022.

Highway Electric is the contractor for the job. For more information, please contact Mike Shahsiah with Traffic Ops at mshahsia@vbgov.com or (757) 385.1652.
