A portion of North King Street just north of downtown will be closed for five days as part of a project to increase stormwater flood storage in the Bright’s Creek area. Weather permitting, North King Street near the Interstate 64 overpass will closed Saturday, Sept. 12, to Wednesday, Sept. 16.
Detour signs will be posted to help reroute drivers. The project will provide additional stormwater storage by installation a new drainage system to carry rainwater from North King Street. It will also help filter pollutants from the water, helping to reduce pollution in the Chesapeake Bay.
