Beginning Aug. 1, a section of Virginia 692 (Horsepasture Price Road) will be closed for about nine days due to bridge work.
The Virginia Department of Transportation will be replacing the concrete riding surface and span on the bridge over Jennings Creek. The bridge is located on Virginia 692 about 0.2 mile from Virginia 694 (Wagon Trail Road) and 0.3 mile from Virginia 793 (Bouldin Road).
Motorists should expect flaggers controlling traffic on the bridge for a few days before and after the closure as crews complete the bridge work.
During the closure, drivers will need to seek alternate routes. A truck detour is available using northbound U.S. 220 at the North Carolina state line onto westbound U.S. 58.
Electronic message boards will be in place to alert drivers to the upcoming closure.
Weather permitting, the road is expected to reopen on Aug. 9.
