ROANOKE COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and the Roanoke County government announced on Tuesday that motorists who use Route 618 can expect at least two weeks of daily road closures for ditch work starting on Feb. 19.

According to current estimates from Roanoke County Planning Services, Route 618 — also known as Highland Road — will be closed 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. from Wednesday, Feb. 19 through Friday, March 6 for daily ditch work. Authorities say the closure will stretch from 2838 Highland Road to Eastland Road for crews to perform ditch work in the area.

If crews are still working along Route 618 on Tuesday, March 3, Roanoke County officials say that VDOT will try to reopen the road that day to accommodate election traffic.
