BOTETOURT CO., Va. -

A Botetourt County truck stop has been granted a short reprieve.

WDBJ7 first told you in May, the TA Travel Center off of exit 150 on Interstate 81 would close for good in August.

Now, VDOT says the date will be moved from August to November.

The plan to close the truck stop has been in the works for years in an effort to improve the gateway into Botetourt County and control congestion and traffic in that area to make it safer for drivers.  

Demolition on the site was set to begin in the fall.

No word how the change in date will affect the project.
