Nighttime lane closures will begin Tuesday night as part of the ongoing work to widen a section of Route 11/460 (West Main Street) to four lanes in the Glenvar area of Roanoke County.

The alternating lane closures will be in place Tuesday through Thursday, from 6:30 p.m. each night until 5:30 a.m. the following morning for the installation of drainage pipes west of Fort Lewis Church Road.

According to Virginia Department of Transportation, the lane closures in the area will be completed Friday morning, September 27, weather permitting.

Drivers should use caution and watch for flaggers controlling traffic. The speed limit is reduced to 35 mph in the work zone.

The project will continue until spring 2014.
