Main Street Renewal Project Vision: Transform Main Street into a bustling and thriving core with modernized utility infrastructure and renewed streetscaping features that enhance the experience for all who live, work, and play in Downtown Lynchburg. • Install new waterlines and update sewer and stormwater features to increase reliability & capacity. • Modernize the underground electrical system to meet downtown’s current and future energy needs. • Update streetscape features to enhance the pedestrian and driver experience.


Our Partnership • Joint design between the City and Appalachian Power began in Summer 2018. • Partnering allows for greater efficiencies in planning, outreach, and construction. • We will impact Main Street only ONCE, not twice. • Cost-sharing opportunities are available.
