The Virginia Department of Transportation is working with Virginia International Raceway, Virginia State Police and local law enforcement to contain the traffic situation as Halifax hosts the Blue Ridge Rock Festival this weekend. Virginia State troopers are stationed along U.S. 58 on both east and west sides. For approximately 1 mile from either direction, traffic will be single-lane, with one lane designated for event traffic and one designated for “thru” traffic.

The Blue Ridge Rock Festival is in full swing at Virginia International Raceway, bringing unprecedented crowds to Halifax County.
