TRAFFIC ALERT: LANE CLOSURES ON ROUTE 460 AND ALTERNATE 220 DUE TO TRACTOR-TRAILER INCIDENT IN ROANOKE COUNTY

SALEM – A right lane closure on eastbound Route 460 (Challenger Avenue) in Roanoke County is in place due to an incident with an overturned tractor-trailer. In addition, the right lane of southbound Alternate 220 (Cloverdale Road) is also closed.  

The tractor-trailer was hauling wood chips and the contents have spilled onto the roadway.  

Incident responders are on the scene, but currently, there is no estimated time for reopening the closed lanes. Additional lane closures may be put in place as the roadway is cleaned up and the tractor-trailer is removed. Drivers should seek alternate routes.
