New 460 Bypass exit ramp construction

VDOT has initiated construction of a new exit ramp along the 460 Bypass in Christiansburg. This ramp will give eastbound motorists the opportunity to exit the 460 Bypass and merge onto North Franklin Street northbound/460 Business westbound near Sheetz.

Construction of this project will require some temporary impacts to traffic to allow for blasting and other demolition activities. Those impacts are as follows:

Blasting Operations near Rte. 460 Bypass: There will be a slow-roll traffic operation on the 460 Bypass in Christiansburg, eastbound and westbound, from 9 to 11 a.m. on Friday, July 6 and during the same times the following week, July 9-July 13. Motorists should expect delays during this time, potentially lasting up to 15 minutes.

Exit Closure on Rte. 460 Bypass: The onramp from Peppers Ferry Road/Route 114 onto the eastbound 460 Bypass, as well as the exit ramp from the eastbound 460 Bypass onto North Franklin Street will be closed Friday evening, July 13, and Saturday afternoon, July 14.
