TRAFFIC ALERT: TRAFFIC SWITCH SCHEDULED FOR ORANGE AVENUE IN ROANOKE NEXT WEEK
SALEM – As the project to improve intersections at Orange Avenue and Hollins Road continue, paving operations will be performed and a traffic switch will be put in place next week.
Beginning next week, on or about April 4, during nighttime hours of 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. the following morning, the travel lanes of eastbound Route 460 (Orange Avenue) will be resurfaced at the intersection of Hollins Road, east of the intersection with Kimball Avenue and west of the intersection of 11th Street. Drivers should expect various lane closures in the area during this time.
Once the resurfacing of eastbound Route 460 is completed, the left lane of eastbound Route 460 and the left lane of westbound Route 460 will both be closed for the reconstruction of the median, turn lanes as well as the median along Hollins Road.
This traffic pattern will remain in place for approximately eight weeks and the project is expected to be complete in Fall 2021.
