road work transportationPart of Route 615 (Egypt Bend Road) in Page County will be closed for installation of a box culvert from Tuesday, June 26, to Friday, July 6. The work zone is 2.7 miles north of Route 211 and one mile south of Route 654 (Kibler Drive) near the town of Luray.

These detours will be in place:

  • Motorists traveling from the north will detour south on Route 675 (Bixlers Ferry Road), then west on Route 652 (Airport Road) and west on Route 211 to return to Route 615. The state-maintained Massanutten boat ramp is just south of the work zone, so motorists who need to reach this river-access point from the north will follow this detour.
  • Motorists traveling from the south will detour east on Route 211, then east on Route 652 and north on Route 675 to return to Route 615.
