TRAFFIC ALERT: VDOT TO TAKE SOIL SAMPLES ON ROUTE 693 (LEAD MINE ROAD) IN PULASKI COUNTY

SALEM – Weather permitting, starting Monday, Jan. 25, the Virginia Department of Transportation will be taking soil and pavement samples on a section of Route 693 (Lead Mine Road) in Pulaski County.  The borings are needed for the development of plans for proposed improvements to Route 693.  VDOT previously announced this work earlier in January but had to reschedule due to weather.

Flaggers and pilot trucks will control traffic on the section of Route 693 between its intersections with Route 672 (Lowmans Ferry Road) and Route 669 (Cecils Chapel Road).   

Weather permitting, drivers can expect possible delays each day, Monday, Jan. 25 through Friday, Jan. 29, between 9 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.

Additional lane closures may be scheduled for the week of Feb. 1 through 5 if needed.
