UPDATE: PIPE REPLACEMENT TO CLOSE ROUTE 740 IN BOTETOURT COUNTY NEAR ROANOKE COUNTY LINE

SALEM —The closing date for Route 740 (Carvins Cove Road) in Botetourt County due a pipe replacement has changed.  Beginning Tuesday, Jan. 10, a section of Route 740 will be closed to through traffic.  This section of Route 740 starts at the end of state maintenance and extends about 0.1 mile south. 

The road is expected to remain closed until Tuesday, Jan. 24. 

A temporary access road will be in place for homeowners, emergency vehicles and local residents to use on Route 740, but the road will be closed to through traffic and the general public. Access to the recreational area will also be restricted.
