TRAFFIC ALERT: ROUTE 460 TRAFFIC WILL BE REDUCED TO ONE LANE IN EACH DIRECTION EAST OF BEDFORD TONIGHT
SALEM – Weather permitting, starting at 6 p.m. this evening (Wednesday, May 20), drivers should expect delays on Route 460 east of Bedford.
Route 460 traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction and shifted into the eastbound lanes. Two-way traffic will remain in the eastbound lanes until approximately 7 a.m. on Thursday, May 21.
The westbound lanes will be closed while crews pump out water that has pooled along the road’s shoulder due to a collapsed drainage pipe. The pipe collapsed during heavy rains last week.
The pipe is located on Route 460 just west of the bridge over the Little Otter River between the intersections at Route 825 (Twin Lakes Drive) and Route 715 (Krantzs Corner Road/Merriman Road).
For updates on the traffic shift on Route 460, visit the www.511Virginia.org Web site or dial 511.
