SALEM, Va. (WFXR) –The Lynchburg Turnpike at the intersection with East Main Street in Salem will close beginning on Monday, March 23, for about two weeks due to reconstruction.

The project will add to existing traveling delays in the area caused by flagging operations, which are expected to be completed by the summer, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.
