STAUNTON – Emergency repairs to a washed-out portion of Route 39 (Maury River Road) in Rockbridge County have been completed. The road is scheduled to reopen at 5 p.m. today (June 25, 2014), a day earlier than the expected completion date.

Heavy rains last Friday caused the closure on Route 39 in the Goshen Pass area, between Route 780 (Brattons Run) and Route 621 (Farm House Lane). Contractors worked around the clock to fill the damaged area with stone and repave the roadway.
