Entire bypass to open to traffic later this month

HILLSVILLE — Two traffic changes are in the works for the US. 58 Hillsville bypass project.

Drivers are reminded to pay particular attention to signs and be alert to changing traffic patterns when travelling on U.S. 58 around Hillsville.

On Aug. 12, westbound 58 traffic at its eastern interchange with U.S. 58 Business was to be shifted onto a new ramp.

Starting Tuesday, the eastbound 58 bypass will be closed between its western interchange with 58 Business and the interchange at U.S. 52, due to paving.

This section of the bypass will remain closed until Aug. 19. Eastbound 58 traffic will need to use 58 Business during Aug. 16-18.

The remaining 3.7-miles of the 5.2-mile Route 58 Bypass could open to traffic on Aug. 24. This date is tentative and could be adjusted depending on weather and work schedule.

The project is expected to be completed by November.
