Lynchburg City officials are asking drivers on the Lynchburg Expressway to consider using the Kemper Street exit instead of the Grace Street exit during the morning commute. Officials say school buses and other traffic on Grace Street are combining to create congestion. It’s all the result of the Main Street bridge replacement project and the resulting detour.
From Lynchburg City: With the Main Street Bridge currently under construction, many motorists headed to Downtown Lynchburg use the Grace Street exit each morning. Because of school buses and other traffic on Grace Street, it can get congested quickly and result in delays. The City of Lynchburg is encouraging motorists to consider using the Kemper Street exit instead. This will help with the traffic flow, reduce driver frustration and help keep everyone safe.
