Two-way traffic using eastbound side of Route 460 while repairs continue on westbound lanes
SALEM – As of June 4, one lane of traffic in each direction is open on Route 460 in Giles County, Virginia, about five miles east of the West Virginia border.
All lanes of Route 460 had been completely closed as crews with the Virginia Department of Transportation have been repairing the roadway following a slide that occurred before Memorial Day.
Two-way traffic now is shifted onto the eastbound side of Route 460 while work continues to restore the westbound lanes. Drivers can expect some delays on the open Route 460 lanes during daytime hours as flaggers may control traffic at times as part of the ongoing repairs to the westbound lanes.
