Beginning July 5, 2022, a section of Route 760 (Diuguids Lane) in Roanoke County will be closed as part of a road project to replace the bridge over the Roanoke River. Traffic will be detoured for approximately 45 days.
The bridge is located at the Salem city limits near Route 760’s intersection with Route 639 (West Riverside Drive). Drivers on Diuguids Lane will need to detour around the closure onto Mill Lane or West Riverside Drive. 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.
The road closure and detour were rescheduled from earlier this year due to a delay with fabricating the pre-stressed concrete beams needed to construct the new bridge. The bridge replacement project will be completed this fall.
