Construction is now underway on the new sidewalk planned for the east side of Rt. 17 from Battle Road to Ft. Eustis Blvd. This is an important enhancement to the Yorktown Library renovation offering more pedestrian and cycling connectivity. Barring weather delays, the construction window is approximately four months and should be completed around the same time as the Library. While no major road closures are planned, there will be some inconveniences with construction traff ic and minor traffic delays ; but there will be full access for all emergency vehicles, mail delivery, trash and recycling collections. Once complete, this Rt. 17 sidewalk will allow pedestrians to safely travel from Ft. Eustis Blvd. to the Yorktown Library.
