All lanes of Route 460 in Giles County remain closed following a mudslide that collapsed portions of the road and damaged a retaining wall.

As of Monday afternoon, VDOT does not have a timetable for reopening the road, but said it will likely be weeks.

If you’re driving to West Virginia from Roanoke, Blacksburg you will need to take Interstate 81 to Wytheville and detour onto northbound Interstate 77.

The Virginia Department of Transportation expects this to be a long-term closure possibly lasting weeks.

An exact time for reopening has not been established.
