Effective this week, and ongoing for the next 60 to 90 days according to Town of Farragut officials, Virtue Road is closed to through traffic around-the-clock from Broadwood Drive to Vista Brook Lane while developers for the under-construction Brookmere subdivision construct a roundabout at its entrance.
Motorists entering Virtue Road from Kingston Pike will only be able to travel as far as Broadwood Drive in Sugarwood. Those needing to access the far side of Virtue will need to take Old Stage Road to McFee Road to Evans Road as a detour.
Orange “Detour” signs are posted to direct traffic, starting at the intersection of Kingston Pike and Old Stage Road.
The road closed Monday, July 8, according to Wendy Smith, Town Public Relations and Marketing coordinator, who noted the closing was first publicized on an electronic sign alongside Kingston Pike.
“The roundabout was recommended by the Municipal Planning Commission as part of the Virtue Road improvement project,” Smith further stated.
