CRYSTAL SPRINGS RECREATION AREA ROAD TO BE PAVED


WYTHEVILLE, Va. – Crystal Springs is 1,800 acres of property owned by the Town of Wytheville. The beautiful Crystal Springs Recreation Area has breathtaking views and wonderful trails to enjoy during a day outdoors and is excellent for biking, hiking and camping.

The property is owned by the Town of Wytheville, but outside of its corporate limits, which prohibited them from applying for VDOT’s Recreational Access Road funding. The Wythe County Board of Supervisors partnered with the town to make application for the funding to improve Pump Hollow Road, which leads from Route 21 to the scenic Crystal Springs Recreation Area which serves around 4,200 visitors a year.

The Recreational Access Program is a state funded program which is intended to assist in providing adequate access to or within public recreational areas and historic sites. The board was recently notified that Pump Hollow Road has been approved for Recreational Access Road funding. This will allow the current gravel state maintained road to be paved.

The Town of Wytheville and Wythe County would like to express their appreciation to the local VDOT staff that assisted the localities in preparing this successful application.

To the Citizens of Wythe County

Winter Storm Diego has passed, but the snow that it has left will stay with us a few more days. As we go through this week, we will have days of melting and mornings of refreezing. These trends can make morning travels treacherous. Please continue to use caution when commuting in the mornings and give yourself additional time to travel.

Wythe County would like to take a moment to thank the citizens for heeding the warnings during the storm. Most citizens stayed home and didn’t attempt to drive the snow-covered roads. Wythe County Emergency crews were able to navigate to emergencies with very few interruptions. VDOT along with county and town crews worked around the clock to clear roads. Thank you for being prepared, helping your neighbors and community, and thank you for staying safe.

Please continue to monitor the weather as we are forecasted to receive rain this weekend. With the rain and melting snow, we could see possible flooding in some areas. Again, thank you for the wonderful job that everyone did to help. Stay Alert and Stay Safe.

Due to road conditions at this time, Wythe County Emergency Services is asking citizens to travel only if it is an emergency.

VDOT and emergency crews are working to keep everyone safe. Please keep the roads clear to assist them as they help our citizens. Primary roads are still the priority. Secondary roads are still treacherous at this time. Please stay safe!
