Saturday Work, July 14th

CSX expects to conduct construction-related work on Saturday, July 14th, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. at locations throughout the Virginia Avenue Tunnel project area. Activities on Saturday may include backfilling of existing excavation areas, demolition and removal of temporary bracing and street restoration work. CSX does not expect any of this to be disruptive, and will implement mitigation measures to minimize any potential impact this work may have on neighbors. Small groups of workers may be present on the site throughout the weekend to monitor the status of pumps and other essential equipment, but activity will be very limited and is not expected to be disruptive.
