Thanks for following up with Tom Flynn. hopefully the City can get VDOT approval to proceed with this 2-way conversion initiative before any potential General Assembly work over of the VA transportation budget in late Winter.

Tom Flynn (City Traffic Engineer) says the City is still waiting on final VDOT approval. Given the time of year, he estimates that the work on the ground will not begin until April or May of 2012.

I just spoke with the City's chief traffic engineer, and he's promising an update within 24 hours. I'll post it here asap.

Traffic engineering had intended to get a final design & bid specification package for the 2-way Shockoe traffic conversions under contract with an engineering firm by the end of November 2011. I will check in with that department in during the first week of December to determine progress.
