SLOPE FAILURE CLOSES PART OF ROUTE 678 IN BATH COUNTY

STAUNTON – A portion of Route 678 (Indian Draft Road) in Bath County is closed due to a slope failure. The location is in the Williamsville area just south of the Highland County line. The Virginia Department of Transportation closed the road on Sunday, April 11, and estimates that repairs will take about one week. All work is weather permitting.

Route 678 traffic will follow one of these posted detours:

  • Drivers approaching from the north (Highland County) will turn right to follow Route 609 (Burnsville Road/Dry Run Road) into Bath County, and then left on Route 614 (Tower Hill Road) to return to Route 678.
  • Drivers approaching from the south will turn left on Route 614, and then right to follow Route 609 (Dry Run Road/Burnsville Road) into Highland County to return to Route 678.
