MAX MEADOWS RD. RAILROAD CROSSING TO BE CLOSED MONDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2016

Wythe County Seal Trans Background

WYTHE COUNTY, Va. – The Wythe County Administrator’s Office has been informed that Norfolk-Southern Railroad will be closing Max Meadows Road, Monday, October 17, 2016, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. in order to perform maintenance at the crossing.  The road will be closed at the crossing only.

Park Street, roughly 180 yards west of Max Meadows Rd. is normally a one-way street, however, VDOT crews will allow it to become a two-way traffic route while crews are working on the Max Meadows Rd. crossing.  This should come as a relief to parents and school officials at both the Max Meadows Elementary School as well as the neighboring Head Start Center.

Wythe County officials are working to notify the factories at Progress Park in an effort to make drivers aware of the fact that Park Street is not suitable for tractor-trailers.

Signs will be placed at Exit 80 in Fort Chiswell, as well as at the north exit of Progress Park advising drivers of the truck detour (trucks with trailers are not to drive on Park St.).

Additional information may be obtained by contacting Lisa McCauley, project coordinator of RoadSafe Rail & Utilities.  Her phone number is 304-964-0683.

Wythe County residents are encouraged to share this information with their friends and neighbors.
