Bishop Road at Route 460 to be closed permanently July 5

Post Date:06/26/2018 12:56 PM

Bishop Road will be closed permanently at the intersection to route 460 on Thursday, July 5 as part of the North Main Street at Route 460 R-CUT project. Access for residents will be from Mt. Tabor Road. 

Previous feedback from some Bishop Road residents supported closing the connection due to concerns with cut-through traffic on this roadway. Closing this connection will allow construction of an additional 170 feet of acceleration lane for vehicles turning right from North Main Street onto westbound Route 460. The longer acceleration will allow more time for vehicles to merge onto Route 460. Closing this access point also will eliminate the possibility of crashes between vehicles merging onto and off of Route 460 at this location. 

For more information, call VDOT at 540-381-7200.
