Workmen Tuesday morning demolish a Main Street crosswalk at Fifth Street to make way for “bump outs” at all four corners of the intersection.
The block from Fourth to Fifth tStreet will for the day at 7 a.m. Tuesday.
The Town of Warrenton Public Works Department on Monday, Aug. 20, will close a block of Main Street — between Fourth and Fifth streets.

A town crew will remove the second brick crosswalk across Main Street to prepare for the new crosswalks and “bump-out” project. The crosswalk runs from Great Harvest across Main Street to the Presbyterian Church.

On Tuesday, Aug. 14, the crew removed the other Main Street crosswalk at that intersection.

On Aug. 20, traffic will detour via Fourth, Lee and Fifth streets. Fifth Street will remain fully open during the construction. Work will begin at 7 a.m. Monday and will last most of the day.  

The town will install “bump-outs,” also known as curb extensions, at the four corners of Fifth and Main streets. 

The improvements will make pedestrians more visible to drivers and improve the intersection’s safety, Town Manager Brannon Godfrey said last year.

The council in October 2017 voted, 7-0, to accept a $45,000 PATH Foundation grant that will fund the project.
