TRAFFIC ALERT: EMERGENCY LANE CLOSURES ON ROUTE 460 IN GILES COUNTY
Route 460 reduced to one lane in both directions at The Bluffs

SALEM – Due to a collapsed retaining wall, Route 460 traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction. The left eastbound and left westbound lanes of Route 460 are currently closed along westbound Route 460 in the area known as “The Bluffs” between Narrows and Rich Creek, about four miles south of the West Virginia state line.

The lane closures will remain in place until the Virginia Department of Transportation can assess the area and determine what is needed to make repairs.

Drivers are advised to expect delays on Route 460.
