U.S. 250 closed on Afton Mountain due to rock slide: Use I-64 as alternate route

vdotU.S. 250 is closed between the top of Afton Mountain and Route 151 due to a rock slide. VDOT personnel are on the scene assessing the extent of the slide and how to remove the material from the road and ensure the slope is stabilized.

At this time it is not known how long U.S. 250 will be closed, but motorists should anticipate using Interstate 64 as the only route over Afton Mountain through Tuesday.

More information about the duration of the closure will be provided once an assessment of the situation is completed.

Current traffic conditions and other real-time travel information can be found on the 511 Virginia website, the free VDOT 511 mobile app or by calling 511 from any phone in Virginia. VDOT updates are also on Facebook and the district’s Twitter account, @VaDOTCulp.
