Rustburg Christmas Parade
December 14th 3:00 - 5:00pm
Starting at the Rustburg Elementary School at Webbs Way, the parade route will turn right onto 501 (Village Highway) and continue along Route 501, ending at the Social Services Parking lot on Route 838 (Kabler Lane).
VDOT message boards will be placed one (1) week in advance to notify the travelling public of the road closure through Rustburg. On Dec. 14, additional message boards and detour signs will be set to re-direct Route 501 northbound traffic, and Route 24 eastbound traffic, toward Route 29 near Foster Fuels. Message boards and directional signage will also be placed to direct Route 501 southbound traffic and Route 24 westbound traffic to Route 680 (Suburban Rd). Detour signage will likewise be positioned along the altered route at Route 738 (English Tavern Rd), Route 29, and Route 685 (Calohan Rd) and other turning decision locations. Motorists should look for message boards and detour signs as well as allow extra travel time during this temporary road closure. Emergency services vehicles will retain access to the parade route; only thru traffic will be detoured
In case of inclement weather, the parade will be held on Sunday, December 21 during the same time frame. For additional traffic and road closure information, motorists are advised to dial 511 or visit www.511Virginia.org.
