US 58 Sinkhole Closures
« on: October 09, 2016, 03:18:57 PM »

A portion of US 58/US 360 EB is closed near the Pittsylvania-Halifax County line due to a sinkhole until maybe the end of the week.

(Note that the detour should be VA/NC 62 to NC/VA 119 back to US 58/360 EB)

EDIT: VDOT's website shows the correct detour of VA/NC 62 to NC 57 to NC/VA 119 back to US 58/360 EB.

Glad I don't go that way. The last time I drove through there was when I went to Norfolk last year for a funeral. It was a mind-numbing drive that seemed to go on forever. I've never been so glad to see I-64 signs in my life.

It doesn't surprise me that Danville's newspaper got the highway labels wrong. :pan:

I was scratching my head over that one.  U.S. 19 and (for a short distance) U.S. 219 can be found in the Commonwealth, but (from memory and then the U.S. 119 Wikipedia entry), not U.S. 119.

I actually clinched this in 2014 in the snow while heading to my parents' house for Spring Break.  I clinched US 58 from I-77 to I-85 that night.  (I did not get it completely finished east of I-77 until this past July though.)

Instead of putting two-way traffic in the westbound lanes?

Would probably take less time to fix the sinkhole than it would to build crossovers to allow two-way traffic.

There will be another closure for US 58 EB (about 2 weeks) near the Southhampton County-Suffolk Line (Blackwater River Bridge) on the Franklin Bypass due to a sinkhole.

This is due to a damaged pipe that must be replaced.  Currently just the right lane is closed.

EDIT:  Work to replace the pipe begins December 15th for at least 8 weeks closing both eastbound lanes.  Traffic will be two-way along the west bound lanes.
