The City of Danville has closed the right, eastbound lane on Riverside Drive and River Street from Keen Street to Bryant Avenue to allow for construction of the pedestrian trail on Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Bridge.
The lane will be closed through Friday, July 10.
Use of the bridge lane as a pedestrian trail will permit Riverwalk Trail users to go back and forth from the Main Street Plaza and trailhead on the south bank of the Dan River to the trail on the river’s north bank.
The project is part of the city’s River District Development Project, which is in its fifth year and has generated more than $100 million in private investment, outpacing public seeding by three-fold.
Motorists are urged to use caution when approaching this area or consider an alternate route.\
