ROUTE 610 IN AUGUSTA COUNTY CLOSED JUNE 15 – JULY 3 FOR PIPE REPLACEMENT

STAUNTON Route 610 (Howardsville Turnpike) in Augusta County is scheduled to close for about three weeks beginning Monday, June 15, between Route 664 (Mount Torrey Road) and Route 855 (Mill Creek Lane). This closure will allow Virginia Department of Transportation crews to replace a drainage pipe with a box culvert at a Back Creek tributary, about 0.2 west of the intersection with Route 664.

 

Home and business owners will be able to access properties on Route 610 by approaching from the appropriate side of the work zone. All other motorists will need to follow one of the posted detours:

  • Eastbound drivers will turn northwest on Route 634 (China Clay Road), northeast on Route 624 (Lyndhurst Road), east on Route 664 (Nursery Road) and then south on Route 664 (Mount Torrey Road) to the end of the detour.
  • Westbound drivers will turn north on Route 664 (Mount Torrey Road), west on Route 664 (Nursery Road), southwest on Route 624 (Lyndhurst Road) and then southeast on Route 634 (China Clay Road) to the end of the detour.

 

Route 610 is scheduled to reopen Friday, July 3. All work is weather permitting.
