The majority of the reconstruction project on Route 83 (Lover’s Gap)
in Buchanan County is complete; however, final paving will not take place until spring. The work zone is located from .2-mile west of Route 718 to .8-mile east of Route 718. The speed limit has been reduced inside the work zone to 35 mph. (Completion: spring 2015)
The project costs are approximately $16 million, including preliminary engineering, right of way acquisition and construction.
