Road Work May Be Done Friday

They’re hoping to have that work on a section of Route 220 (Hot Springs Road) in Alleghany County to be done Friday. In the meantime, it remains closed to through traffic due to damage from a slope failure. Emergency contractors for the Virginia Department of Transportation have completed slope repairs, but still need to rebuild a portion of the roadway, shoulders and guardrail. This work is expected to be complete by Friday, March 15, weather permitting. Until repairs are finished, a 16-mile stretch of Route 220 is closed to through traffic between Covington and Hot Springs in Bath County.
