Traffic pattern changes following home football games
BLACKSBURG, Va. - Blacksburg Police plan to implement changes in traffic patterns on South Main Street following Virginia Tech home football games in an effort to limit congestion and improve traffic flow as motorists exit Town.

The South Main Street tunnel entrance from South Main Street onto Route 460 will be closed and vehicles traveling south will not be allowed to make right turns at that interchange to enter Route 460. Traffic will be routed through onto Business 460 and then, once approaching the New River Valley Mall area, motorists will be directed by VDOT signs to merge left in order to access Route 460 and Interstate 81.

The traffic flow changes reflect a continuing effort by local law enforcement agencies as well as the Virginia Department of Transportation to improve traffic flow and safety following major events in the Town.
