CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19NEWS) -- The Charlottesville Department of Utilities says Barracks Road will be closed overnight Sunday through Thursday to expedite work on a waterline project.

The closure will begin on June 26 and is scheduled through Aug. 5.

The closure will start on Emmet Street to the north and expand south to the intersection of Rugby Road.

Officials say that this project will replace 70-year-old pipes with up-to-date ductile iron pipes, which will improve water service in the area.
