Blacksburg Police are currently investigating a single vehicle crash that has occurred on East U.S. 460 Bypass just east of Brush Mountain Road.

One lane of east bound U.S. 460 Bypass is closed. Drivers are expected to encounter slow moving traffic and should use caution when approaching this area.


At 8:10 a.m. all lanes of Rt. 460 were reopened following an early morning traffic crash.
