WOODSTOCK TOWER ROAD IN SHENANDOAH COUNTY OPEN

STAUNTON – Route 758 (Woodstock Tower Road) in Shenandoah County reopened today (Monday, November 25). A portion of the road just east of the town of Woodstock had been closed since March due to a slope failure. Contractors have completed repairs and reopened the road this morning.

Route 758 is a winding, unpaved road that crosses Massanutten Mountain between Fort Valley and the town of Woodstock. The road travels through the George Washington National Forest.

Contractors stabilized the slope beneath the roadway using specialized materials including a foam-grout product, shotcrete and more than 100 soil nails. The entire project involved about 90 feet of the mountain slope area, including approximately 20 feet of road surface.

Traffic alerts and traveler information can be obtained by dialing 511. Traffic alerts and traveler information also are available at http://www.511Virginia.org.
