The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is rescheduling the previously announced road closure with a detour needed to replace the Diuguids Lane (Route 760) bridge over the Roanoke River. The bridge is located near the intersection of Diuguids Lane and West Riverside Drive (Route 639), close to the entrance to Roanoke County's Green Hill Park.
VDOT had notified residents at a meeting in November 2021 that the detour would start in late January or early February 2022. The 45-day detour has been postponed and is now expected to begin this summer. The road closure and detour are being rescheduled due to a delay with fabricating the pre-stressed concrete beams needed to construct the new bridge.
Signs and message boards will be posted prior to the closure. In addition, signs will be in place to alert drivers to the detour route.
If you have questions for VDOT about the project, please contact Tony Handy, Project Manager, by email at Tony.Handy@VDOT.Virginia.gov or by phone at (540) 352-9050.
