A major construction project has begun that is closing a local Surry area road for a significant amount of time - and the detour markings are not clear. So, please, if you are coming to Chanco, click here for information we give our guests that includes detailed detour directions. If arriving from the Richmond area, your route will not be affected. Thank you for your patience during this time of road construction and please visit our website at www.chanco.org for more information or call our office at 1-888-7CHANCO with any questions.
