Section of Lansdowne to close next week
The road will be closed between Chapman Drive and Teton Drive from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.
A detour route will be posted. It will run from Route 2 to Benchmark Road and then Mine Road, which connects to Lansdowne.
Crews will be replacing wire baskets filled with stone that line drainage ditches along Lansdowne, according to VDOT, which said the baskets were installed in 2011 to “support the road’s slope, prevent erosion, and improve roadway drainage.”
