Traffic light failure closes Front Royal’s major intersection

Main Street and Royal Avenue intersection shut down thru weekend

The Town of Front Royal announced at 9:20 p.m., Friday night, July 27, that Main Street will be closed to traffic at Royal Avenue through the weekend due to a failure of the traffic signal control cabinet. Barricades were placed to prohibit east and west bound traffic on Main Street, and the traffic signal has been placed into a “flash” mode. North-south traffic continued unimpeded on Royal Avenue; and East and West Main Streets were accessible from different intersections.

A replacement control cabinet for the traffic signal was scheduled to be delivered and installed on Monday, July 30.

Questions about this closure should be directed to the Department of Energy Services at (540) 635-3027.

  1. Why couldn’t that have become a 4 way stop until the time the equipment was actually being installed?
