Significant delays possible due to Route 83 pipe replacements in Dickenson County
July 26 - 30, 2021

BRISTOL – Due to the replacement of two large pipes beneath Route 83 between Clintwood and Fremont (Dickenson County), motorists can expect the possibility of significant delays during daylight hours next week (Monday, July 26 – Friday, July 30).

Motorists are advised to avoid the area where possible.

There will be times during the pipe installations that traffic will be stopped for 15-20 minutes to allow crews to place the pipes and cover them with gravel before vehicles can pass.

Additionally, be alert to work along the shoulder between Route 621 (Georges Fork) and the Wise County line July 22-23 and July 26-30. There may be slight delays associated with this work. Pay close attention to workers and signage through the work zone.

For questions about VDOT or to report road concerns, call VDOT’s Customer Service Center at 1-800-367-7623 around the clock (TTY users can call 711).
