West Bank Street to re-open on Friday in Petersburg

Posted by Terry Alexander - email

PETERSBURG, VA (WWBT) - A section of West Bank Street in Petersburg is on schedule to re-open tomorrow.

The street was shut down more than a month ago after part of a building collapsed.

Now city leaders say the front of the structure is expected to be stabilized tomorrow. That will allow them to open the entire street to traffic.

Some merchants have complained that the closure is costing them customers.
