Crews Continue Clean-Up on Route 460 in Montvale

Reporter: Lauren Compton

Montvale, VA- Clean-up crews on Route 460 in Montvale have removed most of the spilled diesel in the area.

About 7,000 gallons of gasoline spilled there after a fatal tractor trailer accident last month. Crews were able to remove the small amount of diesel that ran off into Goose Creek.

The Department of Environmental Quality says they expect to be done excavating next week. Then, they will focus on rebuilding the slope of the road on Route 460 so it is stable enough to drive on.

EQ will be meeting with V-DOT for an update on how much longer that section will be closed.
