Bridge replacement project to detour traffic starting next month
SALEM – Traffic on Route 738 (Webster Road) in Botetourt County will be impacted this week due to work to make borings and starting next month due to a bridge replacement project.
First, weather permitting, a lane closure will be in place with flaggers controlling traffic on Route 738 on Wednesday, March 23 and Thursday, March 24 from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. each day. The lane closure will be in place between Route 738’s intersections with Route 460 and Route 658 (Willowbrook Lane). Crews will be making borings.
Drivers should expect delays or seek alternate routes. These dates for the borings are tentative and could be adjusted depending on weather and work schedule.
Second, the Route 738 bridge over Glade Creek will be closed for replacement starting Monday, April 18. The bridge is located near Route 738’s intersection with Route 607 (Archway Drive), just west of Colonial Elementary School.
Signs will be posted advising motorists to detour around the bridge closure. Eastbound Route 460 traffic can use the western intersection with Route 738 to detour around the closed bridge.
The bridge is expected to remain closed until August.
