STAUNTON — During the week of November 13, 2023 the Virginia Department of Transportation installed truck route restriction signs for a portion of Route 664 (Reeds Gap Road) in Augusta County and Nelson County.

The signs display “No Thru Tractor Trailers” along with truck and route symbols.  Route 664 has sharp curves, limited shoulders and is on steep terrain, making it unsuitable for tractor trailer traffic. 

The new signs are located along Route 664 and on Route 610 (Howardsville Turnpike).

In 2021 truck restrictions were established on Route 664 between Route 814 (Love Road) in Augusta and Route 151 in Nelson counties. Signs identifying the restricted portion of road were erected in 2021.

In 2023 this restriction was extended from the intersection of Route 814 (Love Road) to the intersection of Route 610 in Augusta County. Additionally, Route 814 was restricted from the intersection with Route 664 to the Blue Ridge Parkway.

With the completion of the sign installation in November 2023, this change restricts all routes to through tractor trailers from the intersection of Route 664 with Route 610 to the Blue Ridge Parkway and provides trucks an alternative by using Route 610 to get redirected and avoid the restricted lanes.  

Drivers of tractor trailer trucks that violate the truck restrictions can be subject to fines.
