TRAFFIC ALERT: COMMUTERS SHOULD EXPECT DELAYS ON ROUTE 220 AT THE ROANOKE/FRANKLIN COUNTY LINE
Incident involving a downed power line pole affecting both directions of Route 220

SALEM – Commuters who use Route 220 at the Roanoke/Franklin County line near Route 613 (Naff Road) should allow extra time this morning. 

Route 220 traffic is reduced to one lane in each direction and shifted into the southbound lanes so crews can work on replacing a damage power line pole that was struck by a vehicle last night around 10 p.m.

Traffic on Route 220 between Route 824 (Murray Knob Road) in Franklin County and Route 958 (Dunahoo Drive) in Roanoke County is impacted.

Drivers are getting around the blocked northbound lanes with two-way traffic using the southbound lanes while crews replace the power line pole.

Responders estimate that traffic will continue to be impacted until later this morning, so commuters who drive on northbound or southbound Route 220 in this at the Roanoke/Franklin County line should expect delays and allow extra time this morning.
