Some Charlotte County residents might need to take a different route to and from home, beginning next week. The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) announced Tuesday that they will be closing parts of Route 664, Butterwood Road, starting on May 8. That closure will last through June 7, barring any unforeseen delays. 

The shutdown is so work crews can get in and do a complete mainline pipe replacement, VDOT officials said, adding that there’s no way to keep at least part of that section of the road open during the process. So instead, VDOT officials will be setting up a detour, marking it with signs. Residents will be asked to travel on Route 615, Rolling Hills Road, then connecting with Route 47, Thomas Jefferson Highway and finally Route 665, Harvey Road, before making it back to Butterwood.
