VDOT Temporarily Opens Candlers Mountain Road

Lynchburg, VA - Candlers Mountain Road in Lynchburg is back open for traffic - at least for a little while.

VDOT officials opened the road so that traffic for Black Friday can run smoothly for those headed to River Ridge Mall.

The road work is taking longer than expected since crews found more deteriorated steel on the bridge.

At last check, they say it should all be done around May.
