A project to replace the Route 760 (Diuguids Lane) bridge over the Roanoke River is set to begin in fall 2021. The bridge is located 0.027 mile south of the intersection of West Main Street (Route 11/460) and 0.068 mile north of the intersection with West Riverside Drive (Route 639).
Typical work hours are expected to be Monday through Saturday during daytime hours with occasional work on Sunday. During construction, traffic will be detoured for 45 days starting in late January or early February 2022. Signs will be posted two weeks in advance of the road closure. The traffic detour will be removed by March 31, 2022. Drivers will use Mill Lane or West Riverside Drive to detour and return to Diuguids Lane.
Flagging operations may be in place periodically and occasional night work is possible. Drivers can expect short-term lane closures with flaggers controlling traffic on West Riverside Drive. Access to Green Hill Park, private entrances and businesses will be maintained at all times. Completion is expected late spring 2022.
