Traffic Alert: Traffic Pattern Change Scheduled for Route 460 in Bedford County

As part of the project to realign the crossover and construct turn lanes on Route 460 near Ole Turnpike Drive in Bedford County, the speed limit will be reduced and a new traffic pattern will be in place beginning Monday, June 9.
The traffic pattern change will begin near Ole Turnpike Road and will include closing the westbound lanes of Route 460 and moving east and westbound traffic onto the eastbound lanes. This will restrict traffic to one lane in each direction. The speed limit in the work zone will be reduced to 35 mph. These changes will allow crews to reconstruct the westbound lanes.
The new traffic pattern will be in place for several months. The estimated completion date for this project is December 2014.

Real Estate Tax Bills

If you have a mortgage: Please rest assured that although you got a copy of your Town real estate tax bill for 2014, a copy was sent to your lender as well. If your lender normally pays your real estate tax from escrow, you do not need to come in to pay the tax, it will be handled as it normally is. The bill you got is just a copy. If you do not have a mortgage and normally pay your real estate tax yourself, then you'll need to come in and pay it by the due date. We apologize for the confusion this may have caused this tax year.
