The night time is the right time…

...for road construction -- at least along Virginia Rte. 8 in Montgomery County between Riner and the Floyd County line. Road crews have been widening the shoulders and repaving the highway for a few weeks now and you can be stopped for as long as 20 minutes going and coming during the evening hours.  It looks like the paving is almost complete to the bridge at Little River so the project should be over shortly.
