Local road construction affects route to Chanco: detour information

Information from Sussex Surrey Dispatch

A major construction project is slated to begin October 7th, 2013, leading to a local Surry area road being closed for a significant amount of time.
According to Virginia Department of Transportation representative Rossie Carroll, Route 626, also known as Lebanon Road will be closed from the intersection of Route 620, Rocky Bottom Road, starting Monday, October 7 at noon.
The contractors, Howard Brothers Contracting out of Providence Forge, Virginia, say that a road closure and detour will be in effect for that area beginning on October 7 until “no later than September 14, 2014.”
In an interview, Project Manager Sam Howard explained that they “anticipate the road being opened a month earlier” than the end date listed but that it will be reopened once construction is complete and the roadway is ready for normal traffic flow again.
When reviewing VDOT’s online database for projects, the construction of Route 626 appears to be in an effort to “widen pavement and address geometric deficiencies.”
The detour will have drivers using Route 618, Hollybush Road, and turning left on to Route 10, Colonial Trail West to avoid the half-mile of closed road and construction.
VDOT did say that they will have a “designated detour plan in place, which will provide vehicular traffic with signage around project construction.”

In response to this construction, Chanco guests and staff alike will need to take a detoured route. If arriving from the Richmond area, your route will not be affected. We will be providing incoming guests the following directions in case they are coming from Surry, using Hollybush and Beaverdam Roads.  Click here for the suggested route to avoid the closed roads when arriving to Chanco from the Surry area.
