Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The westbound lanes of Route 460 in Giles County near Narrows remain closed following a tanker truck crash and fire that occurred on Sunday, Sept. 27.

The closure is in place near Route 460’s intersection with Route 643 (State Line Road), about five miles east of the West Virginia border.

Two-way traffic is shifted onto the eastbound side of Route 460 while the Virginia Department of Transportation continues to assess damage and perform repairs to the westbound lanes.

The tanker fire has damaged a section of pavement in the westbound lanes that will need to be removed and replaced before the lanes can reopen to traffic.

Weather permitting, VDOT is anticipating that the westbound lanes could reopen later today or tomorrow.
