Traffic management plan includes detouring southbound I-81 traffic onto Route 11/460
Starting Tuesday, Aug. 2, blasting will be scheduled daily, Monday through Thursday, between 11 a.m. and noon. Blasting days may be expanded to include Friday depending on traffic volumes.
Southbound I-81 traffic will be detoured off I-81 at exit 132 (Dixie Caverns) onto Route 11/460 and back onto I-81 at exit 118 (Christiansburg). The detour will be implemented daily sometime between 10:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. and will be removed immediately once slopes have been scaled and the road is deemed safe for the traveling public. State Police will assist with this detour. A right lane closure will be in place on southbound Route 11/460 during the detour.
