TRAFFIC ALERT: TRAFFIC SWITCH SCHEDULED FOR ROUTE 11/460 IN ROANOKE COUNTY


SALEM – Weather permitting, on Wednesday, March 26, east and westbound traffic on Route 11/460 (West Main Street) in Roanoke County will be switched from the eastbound lanes to the newly constructed westbound lanes in the work zone. The switch will take place between 9 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.

The new pattern is necessary to allow the contractor to complete work on the eastbound portion of the project.  The new pattern will be in place from Route 643 (Daugherty Road) to Route 830 (Technology Drive).


The Route 11/460 project will widen the 2.1-mile section that starts just west of Salem and extends to Route 830 (Technology Drive) to a four-lane divided highway with a raised median and turn lanes. A bridge over Little Bear Rock Branch is included with this project in addition to adding sidewalks to tie into existing pedestrian routes around Fort Lewis Elementary School and providing a paved shoulder to accommodate pedestrian and bicycle traffic.


The estimated completion date is summer 2014.
