The Virginia Department of Transportation has extended the time of the green light at the bridge repair job on U.S. 221 near the intersection with Franklin Pike north of Floyd.

We had passed on concerns about the short (15 seconds) of time of the light which controls the single-lane traffic each way through the construction zone. Resident Highway Engineer Bob Beasley investigated the matter and the time has been extended, which lets more cars get through.

Thanks Bob.
