SALEM – Beginning on September 29 and September 30, the Route 58 project that travels through Carroll, Floyd and Patrick counties will have a change in the traffic pattern in the Carroll County portion of the project between Laurel Fork and Meadows of Dan, weather permitting.
On September 29, drivers can expect a change in the traffic pattern occurring between Route 618 (Pine Branch Road) and Route 780 (Turnip Patch Road). Traffic will be placed on a newly constructed section of the westbound lanes for approximately 2.25 miles.
On September 30, drivers will see a change in traffic pattern occurring between the beginning of the project at Big Reed Island Creek Bridge and Route 653 (Dust Trail Road). Traffic will be placed on a newly constructed section of eastbound lanes for approximately 2.3 miles.
These traffic patterns are being implemented so that the new opposing travel lanes can be constructed.
Directional signage, message boards and pavement markings will be in place to assist and direct the traveling public through the new traffic pattern. The speed limit continues to be reduced from 55 to 45 mph for the entire length of the Route 58 project.
