BLACKSBURG (WSLS 10) - The town of Blacksburg is working to change the course of action once again for a historically dangerous intersection.

The 460 North Main Street intersection is scheduled to have what is called the R-cut plan implemented. This would eliminate the left turn options.

The Commonwealth Transportation Board approved and funded this project, but the Blacksburg Town Council then asked for a much more expensive grade separated interchange instead. The CTB denied that request and kept the R-cut plan in place.

Now, town council is working to take the R-cut plan back off the table.

More than 250 residents have contacted town leaders to say they do not want the R-cut plan to move forward.
