Traffic alert: Lane closure on Route 58 to impact traffic on Lovers Leap Mountain in Patrick County

Flaggers will control traffic around the clock for about two weeks during slide repairs

SALEM – Drivers should expect delays on the two-lane section of Route 58 in Patrick County over Lovers Leap Mountain just east of the overlook.

A short section of the eastbound lane is closed due to a slide that occurred on Feb. 19. Flaggers are controlling traffic around the clock, and Route 58 traffic is alternating using the westbound lane.

The slide is within the work zone where construction is underway to widen Route 58 to four lanes. Branch Civil Inc., the contractor on the road construction project, will be working around the clock to make repairs so the eastbound lane can reopen to traffic.

Weather permitting, repairs are expected to take about two weeks. Flaggers will continue controlling traffic around the clock until the repairs are completed.
