Drivers should expect delays on the two-lane section of U.S. 58 in Patrick County over Lovers Leap Mountain, just east of the overlook.
A short section of the eastbound lane is closed due to a slide that occurred on February 19. Flaggers are controlling traffic around the clock, and U.S. 58 traffic is alternating, using the westbound lane.
The slide is within the work zone where construction is underway to widen the road to four lanes. Branch Civil Inc., the contractor on the road construction project, will be working around the clock to make repairs so the eastbound lane can reopen to traffic.
Weather permitting, repairs are expected to take about two weeks. Flaggers will continue controlling traffic around the clock until the repairs are completed.
