Traffic Advisory: There is a temporary road closure and detour on one of the primary routes entering Hampden-Sydney College through the summer.

traffic alert sign that says, "detour"Please be advised that over the course of the summer, the Virginia Department of Transportation will be working to construct a new roundabout at the intersection of Kingsville Road (Route 133) and Route 15, which necessitates the closure of one of the primary routes entering campus.
