WYTHEVILLE, Va. – The Wythe County Engineer’s Office is notifying residents who drive along US 52 / Fort Chiswell Rd. near Exit 24 to expect delays on Monday, May 2, 2016, as the final stages of waterline installation will consolidate traffic to one lane throughout much of the day and possibly into Tuesday.

“Workers will be performing an open road cut near the intersection of Fort Chiswell Rd. and Old 52 Rd.,” said Wythe County Engineer Bill Vaughan.

According to Vaughan, the work is part of an effort aimed at delivering county water to Jackson Elementary School.

Vaughan said that connecting the elementary school to the county’s water system will provide a higher level of water quality for students and faculty – the school is projected to be on the county system prior to the upcoming school year.
