Traffic is stopped late Thursday morning on northbound U.S. 23 between the Big Stone Gap Powell Valley exit and the scenic overlook. A rockfall protection project on the southbound side is requiring full traffic stops on both sides for up to 15 minutes at a time. The best detour option is Route 610, Powell Valley Road. The project will continue to late July or early August.  JEFF LESTER PHOTO
