Work on the Interstate 440 and Blue Ridge Road Improvements project
will require several road closures starting this week, including a long-term closure of a section of Beryl Road.
Weather permitting, Beryl Road will close at Blue Ridge Road
starting overnight this Wednesday for one year so crews can begin lowering Blue Ridge Road to construct a bridge above on Beryl Road. A signed detour will have traffic follow Pylon Drive, Blue Ridge Road, Western Boulevard and Powell Drive to access either side of the closure.
Starting Friday, overnight closures are scheduled to begin at the Wade Avenue interchange for about 10 nights so crews can set girders for a new bridge.
During this time, full nightlong or intermittent closures may be in place at the interchange on eastbound Wade Avenue, the ramp from eastbound Wade Avenue to I-440 East, and the ramp from I-440 East to westbound Wade Avenue.
Drivers should follow posted detour signs for all closures and be mindful of crews working in these areas.
