Crozet Avenue Streetlight Repair on September 20, 2018

On Thursday, September 20, 2018 from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., contractors for Albemarle County will be repairing the multiple streetlights reported out by the public. Work crews and a bucket truck will be positioned on Crozet Avenue between Tabor Street and The Square.


During that time, please SLOW DOWN and use caution as you travel and be alert for signs and flag men.


The speed limit on Crozet Avenue is 25 MPH  between St. George Avenue on the north and the Rock Gate Cemetery on the south.  Please check your speedometer, not just Thursday, September 20th, but every day.  Some drivers are going way faster than 25 MPH through downtown Crozet.  The time you save isn’t worth the injury or death you might cause.
