By  | 

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- Drivers in Charlottesville will need to avoid part of West Water Street on Wednesday and Thursday.

The city says the street will be closed to traffic from First Street SW to the West Main Street pedestrian mall entrance between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. through Thursday.

Utility inspections that were being conducted Tuesday are taking longer than anticipated.

Westbound drivers will need to take Second Street SE to Monticello Avenue, while eastbound drivers will be detoured onto Monticello Avenue to Second Street NE during the closure.

The Charlottesville Area Transit bus stop on West Water Street near West Main Street will also be detoured.
