Huckleberry Trail detour in place

The section under construction is between the existing underpass under the old farm road and existing Research Center Drive.  The closure of this section of the trail is for the removal of the existing underpass and construction of a new underpass for the new Research Center Drive. Barricades will be installed at the closure points of the trail and detour signs will be installed to direct pedestrians and bikers along the proposed detour.  Pedestrians and Bikers should use caution as trucks and heavy equipment will be in operation in the area.

The detour will be: 

  • From Blacksburg toward Rte. 460 underpass:   Turn left on Research Center Drive, right on Innovation Drive, right on existing Discovery Drive, left to underpass under Rte. 460.
