There's a traffic alert coming up for drivers heading through Botetourt County.

Starting Tuesday night, work will begin to drill bores on the bridge over Ticker Creek, just north of Route 11, Lee Highway.

Crews will control traffic from 7:00 p.m. until 6:00 a.m. for the next two nights, possibly the next three.

Drivers should expect delays.

The work is needed to come up with plans to replace the bridge.
